Yes.  The standard range starts at 5900.

Yes, some versions of Seaside include WAVNCController which does precisely that.

We have it not running, and in fact suspend the UI process, until
there's a problem.  WAVNCController lets us start up the VNC server
and resume the UI process so we can go in and take a look, and then
shut these off after we're done.

Suspending the UI process does help to conserve server resources.
