Magic The Gathering: If a card says "Deals X damage to target creature or player", can a creature block if you target the player?

No, because its not an attack.
Creatures can only block attacks. This is direct damage which can not be bocked.

No. 'Blocking' is what you do in the combat phase, against attacking creatures. There is no such thing as 'blocking' a spell, a damaging one or otherwise.
