Yes, you can just enter the address on the search bar.
However, if the seller is trusted, ask him for a signed message from the address that contains the funds.
If the seller is not trusted, then i recommend using escrow, because having the funds does not mean that he would not try to scam you if you send first.

What do you mean? It is possible to reuse addresses depending on the wallet. However you do not need to care about that, all you need to care about is whether the seller has any funds at all. Signed message is the only way of verifying that someone holds private key for that address, and therefore can spend the funds from the wallet.

You don't need to use the blockchain wallet, just the block explorer. You can also try Chain.so as i like it more and find it more useful and working than blockchain.info.

Is the seller on bitcointalk?

You cannot see all the addresses with the wallet. Most wallets generate the private keys (contains public addresses as well) from the seed. There is no way of knowing what addresses the seed has generated, apart from having the seed by yourself which no one should give to other people ever, or if you need the master public key of the address. Master public key allows you to see all the addresses generated and used from the seed.

blockchain.info wallet (HD wallet) is a public/private key tree generating from a master node.
When you create your Blockchain Wallet, a unique master seed is created. [1]
your root (master node) has many nodes(has an extended public/private key) each node can have many of children.
in other words, it can generate many public/private keys from a seed.
when you check the public address in block explorer you will get the value/balance of the branch and not the tree as a whole
