Yes. A cuboid, for example, has triangular cross sections

No. it could only have one pair of parallel faces. The cross section is triangular.

It is a prism with a pentagonal cross-section

The number of faces in a prism is one face for each of the sides of its cross-section plus the two end faces. A quadrilateral prism has a quadrilateral as its cross-section. Therefore it has 4 + 2 = 6 faces.
