All prime numbers greater than 2 are odd numbers. For an odd prime to be written as the sum of two primes, one of the primes must be 2 because two odd primes will produce an even sum. 11 cannot be written as the sum of two primes. 13 = 2 + 11. 17 cannot be written as the sum of two primes. 19 = 2 + 17.

19 and 43 are two primes having 62 as their sum.

It is not. Of the infinitely many primes only one (the number 2) is even, the rest are all odd. The sum of any two primes other than 2 is even and therefore not a prime. If one of the primes in the sum is 2 then the sum is a prime only if the other is the lower of a pair of twin primes. So, while it is possible, it is certainly more likely that the sum is a composite.

There are not three odd primes with the sum of 14. The sum of three odd primes will be an odd number.
