Can I buy a Nikon camera body that already has autofocus, then purchase any non-autofocus Nikon lens and be able autofocus simply from the body itself?

No. Modern autofocus lenses require motor in lens, older were motorized from body but were marked as AF capable. If lens is non AF it cannot use AF.
