Yes, because all variables are arrays in MATLAB: even scalar values are just 1x1 arrays, so there is absolutely no difference in how they get passed to functions. The only difference is if the function algorithm is written to work with them!

Yes. The array is a variable, the same as a scalar, so you would simply pass it by its variable name as part of the argument list.
Example:
mtx_vct_prod = @(M,v) M*v(:);
M = rand(4); % (4x4) Matrix
v = rand(4,1); % (4x1) Vector
Mv = mtx_vct_prod(M,v);
