Yes. mysqlbinlog is a utility program for the replication facility.
Replication works by writing a log file called (wait for it) the
binlog. This log file is created by the master and copied to the
slave(s), who process it to update the slave database. You can find
more about it in the handbook at

No. If you're not running replication, you won't have a binlog, so
unfortunately this solution won't work.
