Yes, but... I don't know all the details. Hot Rod had an article on this about a year ago.

Someone on another board is doing that and has about 10,000 miles on the motor...and no problems. Same person also used a mech. roller camshaft with Hyd roller lifters and had no problems, that we know of.

yes you can do this, but because a hyd roller has different lobe profiles and ramps than than a mech roller, you have to use significantly less lash.
