Press F to pick up your favourite weapon

In almost every military video game that I've played, you are allowed to exchange your current weapon for a dead enemy's. Is it legal to do this in real life? More questions inside.

1. Is it legal to pick up and use enemy weapons? What about in cases of desperation, such as if you have run out of ammo?
2. What are, or are there penalties for losing or misplacing your own weapon while in action?
3. At what point are weapons assigned to individual soldiers? Before they start a mission? When they check in at their post?
