Yes you can. I did this for my old 125 SW tank I had setup. It worked great and did not have any negative effect the water quality of the tank. I look at this as a different way to create a closed loop system.

shouldn't be any problem. I would check inside them after a while just to see if anything is happening inside there (possibly detritus)

I have a canister filter that I removed everything except one basket and put a carbon bag inside. I change bag about every three weeks but it is nice
