Can I hook up an LCD screen to a vcr or other feed to make it a television...say this one for example:
Hope everyone is having a good day :)

Not directly, with that model. As it only has a vga plug. You'll need to get a converter box to convert the signal from the vcr feed to vga. However there are some monitors that have rca plug ins or s-video. But they are quite pricey.
Apex and I both have the Viewsonic VB50HRTV, which is an external TV tuner. It has RF, S-Video, Composite (RCA), RGB Pass-Through 3.5 mm Mini Stereo Audio In, and RCA (Left/Right) Audio In.

That is a nice peripheral there Apex -- I had actually taken a look at that one for Futurelooks (not sure if I'm allowed to post the link here, but if you do a search on the site for "Viewsonic," you'll find it).

:bandit: Cornea makes a 17 inch LCD with built in TV tuner. It also has coaxial, composit, S-Video and digital, analog connections so you can use just about anything with it. Model #1702. I have seen others with tuners as well. It even has a remote control.
