don't know without knowing what you're planning to tow.
the hitch might have the knob that the friction bar goes on.
but not sure if there's a hitch receiver for the Suburu that would be able to have a hitch with this feature.

not sure what you've got to put the hitch ball into.

Before I took the plunge I let a buddy tow with his forrester for a year. No problems he travels across Oh an Pa no problems

I think you can tow with a Sub. Just keep your pop-up box to 10' or less; say 1,700 pounds or less. Don't think you need any sway control. We have towed a pop-up from MN to the Rockies and back with a 4cyl Toyota. It works.
