I've done it in the past, so it is possible. There's no way that I'm aware
of for more than one user to be able to access it at the same time.

Not simultaneously.

Correct. A PST can be opened in only a single instance of Outlook at one
time.

Sharing PST files is not supported.

Accessing a PST file over the network is not supported
