Yes, if the company offers a Roth option.  It is a designated Roth option within the 403(b) or 401(k) and it is subject to the rules for a 403(b) or 401(k).  It is not an IRA, and not run under the same rules as an IRA.

Yes probably,  a 403(b) plan is NOT and IRA and the IRA rules do not apply to it.    Check with the 403 plan administrator for the contribution  rules to that plan which are totally different form an IRA.
