    Not unilaterally. The dealer has to agree and you will have to compensate them in cash.

    Before you've signed anything, yes. After you've signed, no. A clever buyer will always negotiate the best deal without mentioning a trade in first.

    • I’ve ordered the new car only at this point, have not signed over anything yet

    Sure, that would be part of the negotiations. It's a lot harder after you sign the papers (i.e., no backsies).

    Probably, if you can replace its value with cash. But not if they already sold it.

    Yes. Typically you make up the difference in the value they gave you for the trade-in.
