Can a reaction like the diels alder reaction occur if the diene is not conjugated, but can have the proper geometric configuration for the same electron transfer?

If my question is unclear, I can clarify further if necessary.

I think so, but note that in your example there are two hydrogens pointing towards each other which makes the relevant conformation implausible.
On the other hand, if I remember correctly, Diels Alder like reactions may also happen non-synchronously via a mechanism involving radicals, maybe that's more plausible in that case.

Yes, the reaction you have on the paper is legitimate.

I agree. I have seen such examples published.
