It's hard to find out DDR2 RAM memories nowadays. Moreover, these old ones are doing sold at a very high market price. Can I use a ddr3 ram on a motherboard which originally supports ddr2 on it? If so will there be any future problems?

No. You can't. This a common question asked by many customers in a PC hardware shop. Each and every motherboard is built in such a way that supports a special type of memory/RAM. If it is DDR2 then you must use DDR2 RAM only. You can't use a ddr3 ram on a ddr2 slot and vice versa.

No you can't use a DDR3 on DDR2 slot in motherboard unless your motherboard supports a DDR3 RAM memory. Most commonly motherboards are not backward compatible too in case of RAM modules.
