It's not possible. Different coding framework means they couldn't directly port it.

It's a Yes and No. You need the specific version for your specific device to play on it. If you only have the PS3 version then it won't work on your PS4 since it's not backwards compatible. If the same game is available for the PS4, then you need to own that  version to play. If it's not available then your out of luck and need to go back to your PS3 to play it. 

 

Some do give different versions with the same transaction, but some are sold separate. Here's one example that are Cross-Buy games: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2013/10/16/flower-flow-sound-shapes-escape-plan-coming-to-ps4/

 

And in terms of Last of Us, Naughty Dog did mention they have no plans of porting it to the PS4.
