No, the grammar rules state that it is to be + past participle in present, past and future forms. Here's a link which may be useful: http://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/en/english-grammar/verbs/active-and-passive-voice

I don't know what AIWALS is but yes you can use "get" in a passive construction: Federer got beaten by Nadal.
