You can. Wrap several times and seal the air out well.

You'll need to wrap the pies tightly in plastic wrap (even multiple) plus foil or use a freezer bag.

I would suggest the vacuum sealer to seal the pies in a bag. The sealer is great for freezing all kinds of foods, including store made pies. Seal the pie in the bag and make sure the air has been removed.

The sell/use by date is the last date the store can legally sell the pie as a fresh item but does not mean there is a problem with the pie. The sell/use date is set so that you can purchase the pie on that date and still have sufficient time to safely eat it - a minimum of 2 to 3 days but usually longer. So if you feel safe in eating it when you take it home then it should be okay to freeze it.
If you freeze it soon it should be just as good (and favorable) as when they first put it out.

Yes. You can. The expiration date on bakery items is the last day it can be sold as fresh. A vacuum sealed bag works great, but I lots of times use a resealable plastic freezer zip-lock bag for bakery items with good success (better than wrapping it with seran wrap and by all means easy!). When you are ready to use the pie, let it thaw and for fruit pies warm it in an oven for 15-20 min at 350*. Mmmmm! Fresh pie! Yummy!
