No. Blender has CFD solvers for liquids (intern/elbeem) and smoke/fire
(intern/smoke), both of which are quite outdated at this point.

You could try a decoupled approach by using a library with a python
API, and export/import mesh data from/to Blender via the bpy module.
However, a more integrated approach via a C interface would be
preferred for future Blender development.

Not really, it depends largely on what simulation you want to work on.
There is no real framework for physics sims in Blender (not in the
same way as there is for mesh editing), and physics code hasn't been
touched for a long time.

Work on CFD in Blender is very much needed and appreciated, but it's
not a simple task.
