This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Not directly, AFAIK. There was a discussion on the gdal-dev mailist a year ago about this question.

You probably want to have a look at the las2ogr tool to get your point cloud into a format usable by QGIS.

Also, be sure to check out how GRASS handles LAS point clouds.
