security based on IP address

Hi there,

My ISP provides internet access based on IP address. As in, he gives static IP addresses to its customers and 
allows/disallow internet access based on the same.

1. What am wondering at is, what if my ip address is blocked but I take over somebody else's ip address and try to 
connect to the internet? Will the ISP's proxy detect this?

This leads to the second question..
2. Can I take over the ip address of a system that is already up?
