You can, as a matter of fact, use hardwood flooring all over your house. The house will not only look nice, but will also be warmer than if you had used some other flooring materials. Talk to a contractor about this for professional advice.
Yes you can. However, it can be very expensive, and isn't practical for kitchen or bathroom use. I have worked in construction and many times when remodeling a house I have tore up carpeting to find beautiful hardwood that was covered up. I'm guessing that a lot of people like wall to wall carpeting because of the soft feel when walking barefooted.

Solid hardwood flooring can be installed in most areas of the house, but I would avoid installing it in places that see more moisture than usual, such as the basement, kitchen, and bathrooms. For places like those, you would be better off with engineered hardwood.
