 No, they can't. They don't even make a big shock. I can shock myself 30 times and not fell anything when I stop. I'm not sure how much voltage it is, but I'd say 1-2 volts.

No. It has no current just high voltage it is the high voltage which causes the spark
To make a small taser use a small transformer the wrong way round driven by a 555 timer circuit, plenty of simply circuits on the net

Well it does have some current, just not enough to kill you.
