Yes, of course. Part of doing research about a subject is knowing what have already been researched about that subject.

After all, your research should make a contribution to the existing knowledge about a subject. How will you know if you are contributing to something, if you don't know the state of the art of that something? So, you must refer to previous researchers, that's what citations are, on a basic level.

Another thing you should pay attention to is about how to format your citations when you write a paper. If you already have a journal in mind, for example, see what are the format requirements for submissions to that journal, for example.

It is an important question for real. Of course, you should use it. One of the most important issues of the research paper is keeping it simple and without an enormous capacity to work with. For this, works of different authors could help a lot. In addition to this, you have to be sure that your ideas will work. And, sure you know, the best way to learn if you are right or not is to make your consequences after exploring the subject from different sources and from other researchers as well. But don't remember about making clear the fact that this is a citation not to be accused of plagiarism.
