Also check the ITF website for more info if needed. Basically, if there are spots open in qualies they'll take anyone off the street ;)

At the futures yes.

At challengers, you are required to have a ranking to play qualifying, unless the tournament gives you a wildcard into the tournament.

...or you pay $5000 for a wildcard like in some Eastern Euro countries :-P
Heard that many times from my friends from there who've seen it first hand.
