No, you cannot.

Though the Nintendo DS and DS lite can play GameBoy Advanced Games, it cannot play GameBoy or GameBoy Colour games. Pokemon Yellow is a GameBoy game so it will not work on the Nintendo DS or DS lite.

Can you trade Pokemon between version FireRed and version white if you can then how?

No im afraid. But remember you cannot give them back to fire red. heres what you can do though, you will need:2 ds's a ds lite or original,the games,hg ss plt,p,d.and white and fire red. Now heres what you do: have a ds lite or the original one have the pokemon you want to transfer in fire red in the pokemon computer. insert a pearl,diamond,platinum,heart gold,soul silver game into the ds slot then insert fire red in the gba game slot,at the bottom of the console. Play the ds game and go to the national park ,unlocked after defeating the elite 4. talk to the man at the counter of the national park and he shall ask you to connect to the gba game and select six pokemon to transfer to you ds game. you can only select six per day.when you are finished selecting you will play a mini game where you will hunt ,like in the safari park,for the pokemon.after catching them you have them on the ds game. next you will need 2 ds's 1 with the ds game which contains the fire red pokemon,the second with white. on white go to the poke transfer lab ,which you get after defeatng the elite 4 and again talk to the man at the counter. After his gibberish you should be searching for a second ds. On the ds with the ds game that has fire red pokemon,turn it on but dont play the game.On the ds menu select ds download play and you will be playing a mini game where you slingshot pokeballs at the pokemon after that your pokemon will now be in your pokemon white game.
