It has more to do with the current settings for the number than what an owner is doing with their phone (or other HW tied to the number). Obviously, if the hardware the number is tied to isn't on, they're not going to know they are receiving a call. But - they can have it on DND and you'll go directly go to voicemail without hearing a ring regardless if the phone is on.

There might be some non-technical reasons why you can't reach him. Perhaps they've received a ton of calls and just haven't gotten back to everyone?

That really depends on the service. With Google Voice, you can link both mobile and landline numbers.
Many VoIP services support softphones too. So any device with a browser or have an app that supports it can use the service (laptop, desktop, smartphones, tablets, etc.).

You need a $50 adapter to use it with regular old land line phones.
