Check your furnace fan. The air conditioner unit can be running but the air circulation is usually done with the fan on the furnace. If you have a fan switch on the thermostat, check to see if it is in the auto position. If it has the settings on/auto/off, you can switch it to the on position and see if you get any air movement then. If not, you could have a broken belt.

An air conditioner evaporator is the part of the a/c system that the heat in your car transfers to causing cool air to blow from your vents. The blower is in front of it and it sucks air from the inside of your car and across the evaporator then blows out your vents.

It can, but you will lose effectiveness, the fan is not meant to push air through a whole house, it is only meant to cool the room it is in.
