Yes, but the Version feature was removed after zope 2.7.

"* Removed Version objects from the add menu. Versions are agreed to be
a feature that should not be used as it is not well implemented and
allows for data loss."

That's never a fun situation to be in with any technology... if your
budget affords it, it might be cost effective to bring in a consultant
for a short time to explore your predecessor's system and get you up
to speed on it.
To learn about versions, read this:
especially note the "Caveat: Versions and ZCatalog" which might be
related to your problems (just guessing... we don't know if you're
using a ZCatalog).

We can't guess which parts don't make sense to you :)
Maybe come back with more specific questions here or on IRC? The
#zope channel on irc.freenode.net is often quiet, but there's a lot of
knowledgable zope people in #plone and that channel is more active.
