will a 32bit pcmcia wlan card work in a 16bit slot?

In a word "No", it needs a Cardbus (32-bit) slot.

the manual says

The PC card slot can accommodate one Type I or Type II PC card. This slot is compatible with
16 bit card and Card Bus. ZV (Zoomed Video) port is not available

can i get a wifi card that will work in this slot

The acronym PCMCIA tends to be incorrectly used as a generic term for both 16-bit and 32-bit cards.

PCMCIA is 16-bit, Card Bus is 32-bit and, as your manual says the port supports Card Bus, you can use a 32-bit Wireless Network Adapter in the slot. Examples...

The term PCMCIA is out of date. For some time they've been called PC Cards.
