Yes, it can be used to form a Dodecahedron.

I don't see how! But cut out a pentagon from a piece of paper. Next make a fold along a line between any 2 corners which are not next to each other. It's no longer 2D.


I am not sure what the second sentence is about, but each of the 12 faces of a Dodecahedron is a regular Pentagon.

You can also make a pentagonal prism, of course: two pentagonal ends joined by square or rectangular sides. (This is the basis of the prism in the viewfinder of a single-lens reflex - or SLR - camera.)

What is the shape of the bases on a 3-d pentagon?

It depends on what you mean by a 3-d pentagon. To most people, a 3-d pentagon is a dodecahedron - a 3d shape with 12 pentagonal faces. In that case, each of the faces, by definition, must be a pentagon! If you mean a pentahedron - a 3d shape with 5 plane faces, it could be a triangular prism or a quadrilateral based pyramid. In the first cae the bases are triangles, in the second, a quadrilateral.
