Yes, you can sharpen steel blades by hand. A circular saw vise
makes the process easier. Sears used to sell them.

If you have carbide tipped blades you need special power
tools to do a good job.

After several sharpenings you’ll have to joint the outside
edge, set the teeth and recut the gullets perhaps, but
if you are making only cuts where the top of the saw
protruded through the board (e.g. not making grooves)
simply refiling the teeth to be pointed with whatever file
you have should improve your cutting results.

I suppose many texts on woodworking published prior
to the 1970s have instructions on sharpening steel blades.

Alex mon ami, “discretion is the better part of valor”. Circular saw blade sharpening is best left to professionals.
