    You can swallow air and it will either come back up as a burp or exit the anus as flattus. In your case it will have to pass by your brain first before it exits your anus

    Only if you freeze it, as warm air has a tendency to rise very quickly, making it extremely to consume.

    Although you can 'swallow' air, you do not digest it. Your body uses it in other ways.

    We process air through our circulatory system by extracting the oxygen and transporting it to our bodily tissues through our blood.  No, we cannot "digest" air as our digestive system cannot extract anything useful from it.

    No, that's why humans belch and fart.

    We can metabolize gases in our lungs but I wouldn't call that digestion but respiration
