I would like to scan images into the inkscape program directly from scanner. Is this possible?

This feature is not implemented in current Inkscape versions, but you can use Gimp to scan your document and then import it in Inkscape.
A request for enhancement has been filed: Bug #171843 “Acquire/Scan Image Interface” <https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/171843>.
