Can we add a small kitchen to our basement so one of our children can use our downstairs as an apartment?

Yes, you can add a kitchen. A building permit would need to be obtained for that work.  However, if the apartment is going to be rented to a non-family member in the future, there are other requirements to make it a legal basement apartment.
