Technically, yes. However, a headphone jack does not provide a great deal of power, so you would probably need an amplifier for the sound output to actually be audible.

Can you Connect computer via usb port to stereo?

In most cases, no. A stereo will generally need a 3.5mm headphone jack, a 1/4" headphone jack, a SPDIF digital output, or an optical output. However, some newer systems do have a way to be plugged in through USB, and you can also buy adapters that plug into a USB slot and provide a 3.5mm headphone jack for a speaker to plug into.

Regular passive (non-amplified) speakers will need to be connected to a power amp (an old stereo receiver can do this). Connect the line out of the computer to the aux or tape in of the receiver, and then connect speaker cables from the receiver to each of the speakers.

If you plug in headphones with a microphone built in into a computer how can you make it work as both a microphone and a headphone?

The combined headphone/boom mic, usually have two 3.5mm plugs, color coded green and pink. Plug the green one into the headphone or speaker output and the pink one into the mic socket. If the headset has a single 3 ring,(stereo) 3.5mm plug, then it is generally not compatible with computer use. You may be able to find an adapter, that converts a stereo plug to two separate plugs.

What kind of receiver will allow you to play a mono hi-fi speaker from the 1950's when present receivers are formatted for stereo?

Any stereo amplifier these days can connect to a speaker from the 1950's. You will just have to connect one side, left or right, to the speaker. You won't get stereo. If your receiver has the option, you should select mono output to combine the signal of both channels. Never connect the left and right speaker leads together to one speaker.
