Yeah rubber is always better, but creative use of duct tape will always earn you points from someone. If it doesn't seal good you could always use layers of super wide electrical tape; its much smoother so it shouldn't leak as much.

If you attach the diaphragm to a small rubber disk to seal against the barrel, that would work fine. Try it out and report the findings!

maybe, if you had a rubber washer for sealing the center you could makethe rest if the diaphram from crappy materials, I have this .5" metal direct acting solinoed valve at the center where the solinoed attaches was a backed rubber disk, but the rest of the diaphram was this cheap stuff, I don't remember but it was like some water proof cloth, or unbuffered paper thin sheet rubber, so with a sturdy center on some goodwater proof cloth, wedged between pipe flanges, you could have a diaphram valve and the diffrence is that when refilling, the air will enter the chamber though the diaphram instead of around
