I was just brusking up on my theory a bit and i kind of wondered.

Since a pentatonic minor generally has all the same notes as the natural minor could you subsitute them in a song?

and another thing, I noticed that at least one form (I haven't checked all of them) of the minor pentatonic has a natural sixth? I was always sure that minors had b3s b6s and b7s?

yes you could substitute it.a pentatonic doesnt contain a 6th

Playing in pentatonic scales isn't so much playing in different scales, but rather putting emphasis on different notes.

ok i get it now, i think.

What notes does a pentatonic emphasize though? the root, the thirtd, fifth ad like...fourth?

The minor pentatonic emphasizes the root, minor third, fourth, fifth, and minor seventh of the natural minor scale. Minor pentatonic can replace natural minor, as well as Dorian and Phrygian, though the converse isn't always true.
