Some brands of birth control pills can be used as emergency contraception, yes. Not all of them can, so you'd have to check with your doctor or pharmacist before doing so. In general, it's just a good idea to go get EC, because then you don't have to worry about running out of your pills before you're supposed to.

Per your second question: sperm are single cells with a nucleus, cell membrane, etc. Semen (the fluid that contains sperm) is made up of proteins, sugars, some water; there are a lot of different compounds in semen. It's not "rich in protein" from a nutritional point of view, but it does contain proteins.
