you can use any crank puller but beware of certain models. Pedros makes pullers specific to square taper or round axle BBs. If you go with a Pedros puller make sure you get the one for square taper cranks. Park ships their crank puller with both tips.

Yes, the threads on crank arms are standard, so any brand of tool will work.
