If you can fit your catch plate to their pin box yes you can... Otherwise no until you have a catch plate to fit their pin box.

Nope...unless you lock out the slide action (I've seen done by some...fabricated stop bar - not recommended) you'll be swinging the pin box of the fiver all over the place...ugly mess!

I'm not 100% sure the jaw of the super glide is built to act as the pivot point vs the head pivoting and sliding... Not only would I be worried about the jaw, superglide raises their jaw a 1/4" over standard hitches I believe to accommodate the thickness of the capture plate being added to the bottom of the pin box. Without that fixed plate in between the hitch head and the trailers pin box there would be that 1/4" of play which would allow the trailer to slap around inside of the hitch... yuck...

if you have a removable capture plate that can be installed on his pin box, or lock out the sliding feature with a piece of steel between the tubes..

I believe only if you have the wedge plate for his model pin box (or yours will fit his). Mine only has an allen wrench set screw holding the capture plate to the pin.

Without the wedge, the hitch can come loose and rotate, slamming the hitch body forward and back on the rails even when pulling or stopping straight ahead.

I want to caution you about trying to defeat the rotating cam with a piece of steel (or anything else). If the hitch bangs against whatever you try to block the hitch head with, it can gall the hitch tubes or damage the sliding block. Either of these will be a VERY expensive repair and may well cause a hitch replacement.

If it is built the correct way it will lock out the rotation action and if it does bang like you said, it needs adjusted correctly anyway, when I use mine I back out the adj bolt and drop a custom 4x4x12 steel tube into the way tubes and the rotating action is locked out

Normally you have the super slide hitch to get the 5th wheel away from your cab , so if you do lock it out someway ,it's not going to move away from your cab and then you won't be very happy
