For someone who knows enough Russian: is אפשר the same as "можно"?

I think можно can mean either מותר (it's allowed) or אפשר (it's possible).

That's right :) And you would use "можно" for sentences like "may I have..."

Yes, that's how you ask politely for something :)

"Could I have a piece" sounds slightly more polite. Or "May I have a piece"

Is "אפשר" a polite way to request something?

It's OK. One would add בבקשה in the middle or end of the sentence to make it more polite.

You cannot use a phrase like this without having lots of choices for the answers

Would one ask this way, e.g., for a piece of a cake?
