The answer is Yes to both questions...

to return a return code is a coordinated responsibility between the called program and the invocation environment

in pli .... call pliretc(return_code)
in rexx . exit return-code

The answer to "how to do it" is much more complicated...

the most simple environment is the ISPF environment, the two calling modes are

Address ISPEXEC select CMD ( pli or rexx command )
Address ISPEXEC select PGM ( pli program )

please look at the appropriate ISPF manual for details

Under a raw ( no ISPF ) environment things are MUCH MUCH more complicated ...

Explaining how in a reply to a post would mean to be able to squeeze a two day course on tso services in a short reply ... :-)

regards
