Yes if the A 5 is a Magnum.
Magnum versions are able to fire 3 inch cartridges.
Browning makes shotguns in both 2 3/4 inch, and 3 inch chamberings, or did the last time I looked at a catalog. Clearly, using 3 inch shells in a gun chambered for the 2 3/4 inch shells is not a good idea. If you must use the 3 inch magnums, get an A5 chambered and built for them.
Fabrique Nationale first started making the 12 gauge 3" Magnum A5s in 1958 and stopped in 1976. The 20ga mag was not introduced in the US until 1967. After Feburary 1976 A5 Magnums were made by Browning/Miroku in Japan. This production ended in 1998.
You need the services of a gunsmith
Recommend you have it examined by a gunsmith.
Depends on when it was made. Go to Browning.com and ask.
This is a lightweight 20ga A5 made in 1966. The barrel should be marked for 2 3/4 shells. ***If the barrel is marked for 3" shells then it is not the original barrel. It is not safe to shoot 3" mag shells with the standard receiver.

A semi-automatic shotgun.
Yes it can, however it is not as simple as lengthening the chamber in the barrel. There are in fact 12 different modifications that must be made to the shotgun to have it work properly with the longer shell. Contact the Browning service dept for a quote. Browning is the best source to have this done.
