yes,  the existence or absence of a trigger has no impact on whether it can be partitioned


note, an update trigger might require you to enable row movement if the trigger would cause data to need moved from one partition to another.

Yes you can. If your trigger is defined to be fired before insert, you don't need to do anything else. If the trigger fires after insert, you will need to enable row movement.
