Yes you can but it can be a pain because you have to still shift gears when needed. (This is just my opinion.)

Yes, you can. You may need 2 cancelation switches instead of one, one for brake and other for clutch pedal.

It is not a pain to use because you usually only use cruise on the highway which means your usually leaving it in top gear anyways for the next hundred miles. I have cruise on my manual car stock.

Ditto; I've had cruise on several stick shift vehicles. I don't believe they require a second safety switch on the clutch. If I recall correctly the electronics in the main control will sense the increase in engine rpm and disengage if you mash the clutch while the cruise is on. I would have to try it on my current automatic vehicle, but I think the same thing happens if you were to bump the shifter into neutral on an automatic while the cruise was on.

My truck is stick shift with factory cruise installed which has two switches, one on brake and other on clutch pedal, touching a clutch pedal will disengaged the cruise, mine is Toyota 4x4 if that will make any differ.

The controls I had on stick vehicles were all aftermarket; probably the factory stuff has a clutch switch.
