Yes get the data sheet and you can even connect it to Arduino.

You need to match the + and – volts data inputs clock and other things.

They all basically work the same way it is just the connections you need to work out.

Because the screen needs a video driver - If you don't have that you will need to design and make one, more than likely involving a microprocessor and some programming.

usually this isn't really very practical.

Getting the screen is the easy bit. IF they were easy to use you would find project all over the place to re use them for many things. BUT there isn't - for a very good reason.

You can Google “LCD datasheet 7" 800x480” and it will send you to pages like this one,

http://www.alldatasheet.com/datasheet-pdf/pdf/473433/HANTRONIX/HDA700L-GH.html

Or you can look on the back and get the part number.

Then go to this web site, and search the part number.

This is another web site I like for data sheets.
