Can double bonds have both sigma and pi bonds?

Yes, double bonds consist of one sigma and one pi bond. The pi bond is the "second" bond in the double bond.

Yes, here is a rule of thumb:
a single bond has one sigma bond
a double bond has one sigma and one pi bond
a triple bond has one sigma and two pi bonds

Yes, the sigma bond is the first bond and the pi bond(s) are the second and/or third bonds

Double bonds have both a sigma bond and a pi bond. The way that this works is that the first bond (the single bond) in the molecule is a sigma bond. All bonds after that are pi bonds.

Yes. With multiple bonds, there is only one sigma-bond and each additional bond is a pi-bond. For a double bond there is one sigma-bond and one pi-bond.

Double bonds have a sigma and a pi bond!

A double bond has 1 sigma bond and 1 pi bond.

one sigma bond by default, and a pi bond because its a double
