In friction mode, for sure.
Indexed? I doubt it, but I don't know for sure.

I believe this requires a J-Tek Shiftmate. Assuming you have a Shimano cassette, Model #4 will work with your setup: https://jtekengineering.com/shiftmate.htm.

Frankly, if you're presently running the all-Shimano setup with no issues, I cannot see any reason why you'd wish to complicate your life (and your overall expenses) by mounting Campagnolo shifters - unless you plan to use Ergos.

Most likely everything you need to know about compatibility is at that site.

I use 10 speed Campy on 9 speed shimano parts after reading that site.
