It is, you just need an SSH client for the iPhone. Availability varies according to which country you live in, I can suggest TouchTerm, has worked well for me, go looking in the App Store.

Yes, you can.

Apart from finding a suitable SSH client, you must enable SSH on your machine by

$ sudo apt-get install ssh

But in my experience it was hard to use the on-screen keyboard to issue TABs, Ctrl-R's etc.
