Yes, this should be possible.  In your course, go to your "Settings" screen, and then "Import Content into this Course".  Instead of importing content from a different course, you're going to import content from the same course (by selecting "Copy a Canvas Course" from the dropdown menu).  Essentially, you're going to copy content from the same course you're in to the same course you're in.  When you "Select specific content", you'll find the quiz that you want to make a copy of to make a duplicate of it.  This should allow you to re-name the duplicate copy as well as change any details/questions of the duplicate.

If this does not work, you could import a copy of the quiz into a sandbox course that you have, make the changes in the sandbox course, and then import it back into your actual course...and that will essentially do the same thing...just a few more steps.

Hope this helps!

Could it also be done by having a question bank and making another quiz?   Or making another bank and saving each question to it (if it's a short quiz that might be shorter than the importing process).

That would accomplish part of what duplicating a quiz accomplishes but not everything. It would effectively duplicate the questions setup, but all the rest of the quiz settings (description, dates, differentiation, etc) would not be duplicated and have to be recreated.
