Not really.
You could open the DB in Notes Designer. – Create a view and see what’s in the documents.
You could also link to it from an Microsoft Access Externally linked table – needs NOTES SQL ODBC from IBM.

I would say yes and no. It depends on the DB, First if the DB is located on a Domino Server and you HTTP running you should be able to hit it with a browser. I say should be since some DBs dont translate well to HTTP but most simple DBs will.

http”//[SERVER IP OR NAME]/FOLDER1/FOLDER2/databasename.nsf

Since Lotus DBs are a mix of Data and Application then you need to have Notes to open them. If you have a Lotus Domino 7 Server and DB Installed then you can convert the Domino DB to a DB2 Database and ODBC it from there.

You have many options here but the best approch would be to use a Lotus Notes Client.

Just let me know if you need more info on the topic.

    you could also get to information in a notes database using java or com. This would imply that your are working on a computer/server where the necessary classes have been installed (mostly done byy installing the notes client or domino server. If you give more info on what you wish to achieve with your question we could probably be more helpful :)
