Only aircraft with Dive keyword can perform dive bombing attacks. As per p.22 of the rules,

Dive Bombers Dive to Low

If you have an Aircraft with the “Dive” Key Term, and you want it to perform a Dive Bombing Attack this turn with its Bombs, flip the Aircraft's counter from High to Low.

The Aircraft will perform a Dive Bombing Attack later in the Turn during its Attack step.

Re: Can any plane armed with a bomb perform a dive bomb attacki
While we are on this topic, I wanted to ask a follow up.

Do dive bombers only get the bonus for dropping bombs, or do they get the bonus for other weapons too, like rockets and torpedos???

Also, can planes with guns in [], attack sites or the target with their guns, or can they only use loaded munitions???

Taking the rules as written, it specifically states, "... want it to perform a Dive Bombing attack this turn with its Bombs..." - thus, you wouldn't be able to use any other kind of munition in a Dive Bombing attack.

I would say no, as Gun Attack numbers in brackets are not mentioned in the air-to-ground combat rules and only apply to air-to-air, as per p.27 of the rules,

Aircraft with Attack numbers in brackets “[ ]” have Gunners. These Aircraft perform Attacks on enemy Aircraft that are Advantaged or Tailing them, as if they were at a Neutral Position.
