Is there a way to show whether one point would be visible from another point?

    I have a couple of suggestions for this. For a simple inquiry you could use the "viewshed analysis" option under Custom Layer. This will create a layer that shades the areas that you can see from a given point. If the second point overlaps with the shaded layer, you should be able to see it from the first point.

    For a more robust view, you could export your points to Google Earth and get a really clear picture of if the two points can see each other.
