Its very unlikely that this wall is load bearing, so the simple answer is yes.

Yes you can probably take out the wall, check or get some one reliable to check that its not load bearing.

It is unlikely this wall will be load bearing. After removing any plasterboard, it will be clearer to ascertain whether it is or not. If there are single horizontal noggins between the stud uprights, the wall is almost definately not load bearing. However, if there are additional diagonal timbers, the wall could in fact be load bearing. If in any doubt, approach a builder, or even better structural engineer.

It can be done. But you will need to have it checked that it's not a load bearing wall
