If your question is in context of OpenFlow switches, then the answer is No (except few limited configuration of Meter/Group/Queue is allowed). But if you want to configure ovs switch, you can probably do few configurations through ovsdb southbound plugin.

Nope, i don't think so that's doable through openflow southbound plugin. But If your switch support Netconf with openflow, then you can probably use controller netconf plugin to configure the device.
