I guess you use just simple volt meter, which the display only show positive value.
yes it can, just reverse the connection to the - volt meter opposite with the + volt meter. And of course you have to change the display and add minus sign.

Re: Power supply

'displaying' is not clearly understood, but you can capture it using a DSO for storing and display purposes.
