Can you go around a curve with constant velocity?

Yes, it is. Trajectory also depends of direction of acceleration, not only it's magnitude.

When you consider circular orbit, the agnitude of centripetal acceleration is constant, but the vector directions changes every moment to point constantly at the center.

No, the definition of acceleration is the increase change in velocity over time. An acceleration can also be a decrease in velocity over time. Constant velocity refers to an object that maintains the same velocity as time progresses. If the object has an acceleration, its velocity will not remain constant.

In the case of rotational velocity there is a constant internal acceleration that has the magnitude v2/r

No. Constant velocity implies a constant speed, AND a constant direction.

No. Since the direction changes, so will the velocity.
