Yes you can, by pressing Ctrl-F2 (Ctrl-Fn-F2 if you're using a laptop) and using the arrow keys. You can also quickly select a menu item by beginning to type its name. If pressing Ctrl-F2 isn't working, you need to enable full keyboard access by pressing Ctrl-F1. Then you will be able to press Ctrl-F2 and use the menu bar via the keyboard.
You can get a full list of such shortcuts in the Mouse & Keyboard preference pane in System Preferences. These are the shortcuts:
Ctrl-F1: Enable/disable full keyboard access
Ctrl-F2: Move focus to the menu bar
Ctrl-F3: Move focus to the Dock
Ctrl-F4: Move focus to the active window or next window
Ctrl-F5: Move focus to the active window's toolbar
Ctrl-F6: Move focus to the floating window
Ctrl-F7: Move focus between controls or text boxes & lists
Ctrl-F8: Move focus to status menus in the menu bar (the icons on the right side of the menu bar)

I don't think there's a way to do that. The best thing I can suggest is memorizing universal keyboard shortcuts. Common shortcuts listed below.
- "Command + Q" quits the application that's open.
- "Command + W" closes the frontmost window
- "Command + N" opens up a new window in the program that you're using.
- "Command + ," opens up the preferences
Keyboard shortcuts are listed beside their corresponding action in the menus.

try using the "down" arrow on your key board. Or the spacebar to scroll all the way to the bottom
