I am buying 3 plants from
Home Depot. Can I divide
them and plant some in the ground and some in baskets, or must they each be
planted direct from container to ground or bakset.

The answer really depends upon the individual plants and how their root systems are structured. If you can find bougainvilleas with multiple stems emerging from the top of the soil, you may find that each stem has its own root system. If so, you can separate them and plant them individually. If there is only one stem and one root system, you won't be able to divide the plant.
