dolby 5.1 and headphones

It is not possible; real surround 5.1 requires five speakers and a sub woofer.

Most Yamaha receivers have a "Silent Cinema" mode for headphones. This mode uses HRTF (head-related transfer functions, look it up on Google) processing to simulate surround. The effect is modest at best. For more complete simulation of surround, there are special 5.1 headphones on the market.

No, you'll need a 5.1 surround sound headphones - there are some on the market.

Otherwise you amplifer should be able to output Dolby Pro Logic (or simulated surround sound).
