Approval of minutes of the last meeting

The short answer is "yes".

 

The slightly longer answer is that there's no need to make a motion to approve the minutes (mainly because not approving them is not an option). But a member who wasn't present at the meeting in question is perfectly free to suggest a correction prior to approval. Our favorite example is when the minutes record that the absent member made a motion.

Can someone who did not attend the last meeting, motion to approve the minutes of the last meeting or even second the motion?

Does this also apply to a newly elected board member, who was not on the board at the previous meeting?

What Professor Mervosh quoted applies to anyone who is a member at the time the minutes are read and approved. To reinforce the point, there should not be a motion "to approve the minutes." The chair simply announces they are approved when no more corrections are offered.

I'm a professor now?  Want to award me a doctorate as well?  :)

It applies to anyone who is a member at the time of approval.

It should be noted that approval of minutes does not require a motion, nor a vote as long as there are no disputed corrections.
