Once you get past a certain age (your teens, give or take) it is extremely unlikely that much will change.
My mother emigrated to Canada from the UK as a child and sounds Canadian. My dad did the same as a young man and sounds mid Atlantic at best.
I moved to the UK at 18, and retained my Canadian accent.0

Yes, they can. Its like learning a different language when being in the country. You adapt the local accent of that language.0
