Is it possible to work with a simulated robot in real environment? I want to do pick and place operation using a robot (for example PR2). It requires point cloud processing in PCl to detect objects and position them. However, the environment with specific objects are real. As I don't have a robot, is it possible to use simulated robot to do pick and place task of real objects? Is it possible to generate a world in gazebo that resembles my real environment. Than simulated robot can work with simulated world? Anyone can please describe how to do this?

Yes. you can use a pick and place application in simulation. You can also create an emulated environment in Gazebo. See:
