If all you have is a screen... The short answer is, NO. The long answer is, it's entirely possible but the costs and difficulty are high. For either use, you'll need parts that are expensive and not always readily available. The cash you'd spend on this idea could probably buy you a very nice digital picture frame, a decent netbook, or a low-end notebook. If you have the computer, reassemble and repair it and it can do either of the things you mentioned with some freely available software. If you don't sell the screen on Ebay to someone who needs it.
