Can PCs or Macs read and write Amiga floppy disks?

A. Short answer: Not for free. Get over it. Longer answer: While the Amiga does use PC-type floppy drives, it uses the custom Amiga chips to control them, and writes entire tracks at a time with no sector gaps. This is beyond the capability of the standard PC floppy controller. There is a special floppy controller called the Catweasel that makes this possible; see: http://www.jschoenfeld.com.
