Yes, dipole moments can occur in ions. A dipole moment occurs when there is a difference in electronegativity, and greater differences produce larger dipole moments. Since there is a difference in electronegativity between ions, then there is a dipole moment.
Yes, for example in KF. F is extremely electronegative, so it will pull electron's closer making it more negatively charged. Therefore, the K will be more positively charged and a dipole moment will occur.
