No, you can't 'sponsor' them. But, yes, they can apply on their own.
Documents? They don't need your documents, they need their own financial, employment verification, property ownership documents.

Only US citizens can sponsor parents. They can apply for a visitor's visa if they can prove they intend to go home after the visit and provide a detailed itinerary of what they will do in the US.
Your parents apply for the visa at the Consulate. You can send a letter of invitation and affidavit of support.
