Well as hell was supposedly created as a place for satan/lucifer to be punished and he was the first fallen angel, and according to the book of revelations he will be given 1000 years to change, then why can't other fallen angels? So, I would say yes.

(The verse above pretty much tells me that the answer is yes!!)
They had the opportunity to repent, before they were cast out. The casting out happened once the proof was there that they would not repent, no matter what. That does not mean that after the casting out, they might feel miserable enough about the consequences that they would pretend to be repentant. That's why there is a prison. Someone can be convicted of a crime and later feel sorry, but that is not heard by the judge or jury, because they are already locked up.
I believe if they wanted they could.
Prophets can warn people about impending judgement for being evil, and there is a space for repentance before it comes about. Once the calamity starts, and the people begin to suffer, it is too late to repent because it would just be false and self serving.
. . .God did not spare the angels who sinned, but threw them into hell and locked them up in chains in utter darkness, to be kept until the judgment,. . .
