From past experience with imported cars it's unlikely that you will get UK insurance unless the car is actually UK registered.

Yes you can - Stevenage have insured mine on German plates using the VIN number until I get my SVA and DVLA registration dramas sorted.
As long as you tell them, it's not an issue - just don't try and fly it under the radar.
