If I understand you correctly, than yes. You do mean a male treaded adapter with a plug, right?

If I misunderstood than please enlighten me with some pictures, Im a pretty visual person.

If I understand your question correctly, then yes, you can use threaded plugs and fittings. Just make sure to apply some teflon tape or pipe dope of some kind to retain pressure. :)

Yeap, you should be good to go, just use teflon and some kind of sealer would help as well.

Just remember not to use dwv, because that is what most cleanout caps are.

Correct, make sure you use NSF-PW threaded plugs. (or caps)
