No, you are not eligible for recruitment in Indian Air Force after pursuing PCB in 10+2.

The required qualification for recruitment in Indian Air Force is candidate must have passed 10+2 with PCM as main paper.

So, you are not eligible to appear for NDA examination and hence, not eligible for recruitment in Indian Air Force.

Yes you are eligible for Air Force having PCB. There is no any requirement of particular stream or subject. You need only 12th qualification with 60% aggregate if you are in general category. Age should not less than 17.5 years.
Candidates under reserved category get benefit as per government norms.
