Can vcenter 6 be installed and used with SQL 2012?

As of right now, vcenter is using the default (postgres) I believe DB that was installed during the vsphere 6 install.

Update_Manager and SRM will use the SQL 2012 DB.

Is it possible to place vsphere 6 (vcenter) on SQL 2012 too)
Could this of been done during install
and now that it is using postgres can I migrate it over to SQL 2012

Yes, vCenter Server supports Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server databases.

if you accept defaults, and do not specify an external database, e.g. SQL.

Yes.

There is not currently a supported method to move Postgres to SQL.

I would recommend a new installation.
