of course you can, but I agree with the other guys, buy a Fat strat or at least sumthin with a bridge hum. I am waiting for my Lonestar Deluxe to come in, has a Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates so thatd probly do good metal tones.

You will get alot of hum, and low sustain. It depends on the model an HSS probably, without any hum on the humbucker, and I believe some newer ones have better sustain.

a lot of sustain comes from technique as well. But yes, newer strats, especially American ones have great sustain.
