Sure you can but what's the point? Hawk already makes 1.3X anamorphic lenses for Super-35 sensors so what would be the advantage of using their 1.3X anamorphic lenses made to cover a larger sensor?

Yes, as long as the lens mounts and flange focal distances are compatible.

That article refers to using the Hawk 65 anamorphic lenses on the Red VistaVision camera, not a Super-35 camera, so you'd need lenses that covered the larger sensor.
