Does anyone know if you can obtain source codes from a complied program? If

There's such a thing as a disassembler. It attempts to convert binary
executables into assembler code. Of course if you cant read / write
assembler, its not worth the trouble. ;)

Me thinks I misread your post.

If Reverse Engineering is your quest here's a good start:

Re: Source Codes
 
If the source code is made available, yes. If not, no.
Note: decompiled code is NOT source code.
