Is it possible to put GPS coordinates into a Hummingird 798 and go to that spot? I mean like GPS points you get from a friend or map or handheld?

Yes you can enter GPS points manually. You will want to consult the manual to get to the screen you need to enter points. From a handheld I would transfer the points via computer using Ozi explorer or GPS Babel.
One more thing. Taking GPS points from a map will get you in what I would call the general area they are not normally exact.

A distinct layer of water where rising warm and sinking cold water meet but do not mix. It is a layer of water where the temperature changes at least one-half a degree per foot of depth. In many of our desert bass lakes, a thermocline often develops during the spring and breaks down in the fall. The colder layer of water is often lacking in oxygen, forcing most baitfish and sport-fish to the upper layer of water. Thermoclines can be so dense that they actually show up on sonar (fish finders and depth finders) as a thick, impenetrable line.
