Not sure what you are trying to do, but if you've got a polygonal circle, just select the face and choose the extrude face tool. But somehow I don't think that's really what you are asking.

Yes you can ...

However, I would like a picture or something to see what you are really trying to ask us about.

Hmm, I see what you mean, of course you can, provided you actually have a circle face to extrude.

I´d guess you´d have to split some faces to get this face or something. I don´t know how to create the face though ... I suppose Split Polygon tool doesn´t work for this one. (hell! that´s a lot of tweaking to do!)

You would have to create a circular face using Split Polygon or any of the other available poly tools. It is impossible (as far as I know) to extrude anything other than the face's shape.
