As is yes, there are processes within Android that can allow the Play store but that involves a process which can brick the handset if done incorrectly which is why I wouldn't recommend it.

Usually if a handset doesn't have the Play Store on it there is an alternative app source.

It may not have Snapchat however on the alternative store.
