Can the Taurus judge shoot 30-06 ammo?

No. The Judge series are chambered for .45 Long Colt and .410-bore shotshells. That means a bore diameter of .454 inches, whereas the .30-06 has a diameter of .308 inches.

Can you use colt 45 and colt 45 long in the same pistol?

Actually, the cartridges are .45 ACP (automatic Colt Pistol) and .45 Colt (the cowboy era revolver cartridge. There is not really a Colt 45 Long. Can a revolver shoot both? Some can- they are chambered for the Colt .45 -but to shoot .45 ACP they need a "half moon clip"- a strip of metal that holds 3 of the shorter .45 ACP cartridges. 2 of those fill a 6 shot revolver. The PISTOL (not revolver) that shoots the .45 ACP cannot shoot the .45 Colt- no groove for the extractor to pull a fired cartridge out of the chamber, and it is too long.
