Which Developer Suite (DS) version exactly do you use? As far as I can tell, DS 10.1.x is not supported on 12c database. However, just like the good old Forms 6i weren't certified nor supported on different new database versions and/or operating systems, people made it work, somehow.

The same goes for your question - try it and see how it behaves. How? Basically, you should install database and DS into separate Oracle Homes (i.e. different directories) if they are on the same computer. Modify DS's TNSNAMES.ORA file so that it points to your 12c database. That should be enough to connect Forms or Reports to the database.

You have to be aware of the fact that - if something goes wrong - Oracle won't assist so think twice before putting something like that into production.

Moreover, note that DS 10g is desupported so - consider upgrading to the most recent version (which would be 12c, just like your database, downloadable on OTN, here).

Yes, Forms 12c will work with Oracle 12c database (that's rather obvious, isn't it?). If you are going to develop forms, no problem. If you want to deploy them so that other users can use your application, you'll need to install Weblogic server. I don't know much about it, so you'll have to wait for someone else who does these administrative tasks. In the meantime, feel free to read installation guide(s) - everything you need to know is written in there.
