Could plus be used instead of and?

Yes. Added for both English and Polish sentences.

The sentence "Dziesięć i siedem to siedemnaście" does not sound right in Polish.

Dziesięć dodać/plus siedem równa się siedemnaście - (The sum of) Ten and seven
is seventeen/ Ten (cookies) and/plus seven (cookies) are seventeen (cookies)

You can say in Polish:
Dziesięć i siedem to (są dwie) liczby/(są dwa) numery/numerki (w kolejce)/(dwa) rozmiary (butów)/ Dziesięć i siedem (dwiema) liczbami/(dwoma) rozmiarami (butów) - Ten and seven are (two) numbers/ Ten and seven are two (shoe) sizes

It does sound colloquial at best, I guess. But that's what the course creators put in the course and they didn't introduce such words as "plus", "dodać" or "równa się"...
