I'm by no means an expert, but I don't know why you can't. We're currently using the management port for our "outside" interface, because our Internet pipe < 100 Mbps. We use the gig ports for internal/DMZ. Anyway, it should work.

Sure you can. The management port can be treated as a regular ethernet port (until it is configured with management-only - which is default). LAN failover requires a dedicated port, so feel free to specify Man0/0 as interface in 'failover lan' and/or 'failover link' commands.
