Yes you can but of course you'll have to run a tube.

I have mounted several tubeless tires on tube type rims with no problems. As you said, you need to run a tube, of course.

Tubeless tires are generally harder to spoon on the rim than tubed ones. That being said, they are usually more rigid which means they're more likely to prevent an accident from a leaky or a blown tube because a flat tire will still kind of hold its shape.
