With Nginx Can a .pem file replace a .crt and/or a .key File?

Problem scenario
You know .crt and .key files can pair as ssl_certificates and SSL certificate keys respectively. In Nginx, can .pem files replace .crt files? Can .pem files potentially replace .key files? Can a .pem file be a substitute?

Yes to some extent, for the nginx.conf file, a .pem file can replace a .crt file and potentially a .key file too.
