Yes, to call on is used in the US to mean a social visit, but it is a little formal. I would suggest that you avoid its use.
To call on is commonly used, however, when you are talking about a salesman visiting a customer or potential customer.
I called on The ABC Store a week ago.
The manager of the Kit Kat Club wants you to call on him this Monday. He is interested in some new furniture.
to be on call = estar de plantão
You will be on call for the next 24 hours. Be prepared to respond immediately if you are paged.
