Why is there a red line when I try to connect one node to another?

A diamond shape does not fit into a round, and a round shape does not fit into a diamond shape. But why is that? Short answer: Because one data type is a single value, and the other is "Fields&...

Is it possible to apply Geometry nodes?

If It's Blender 3.0 use the node Realize Instances, then apply the modifier. The Realize Instances node basically converts the geometry nodes into real geo.
