It depends on the specific process. Google 'cross processing' between the films proper process and whatever process you have. Generally motion picture films need to be pre washed to dissolve a carbon backing which I usually just use a warm rinse maybe with some dish soap and rinse until the water is fairly clear. The remander of the backing can be squeegeed off with your fingers afterwards before the film dries. which I usually do by hanging between the tracks of my garage door. I've never done super8 though. Run some very short tests just so you get a handle on what 'actually' happens.

Assuming it's B/W film, potentially, yes, but the quantities required are a lot more. A Super-8 film has about 3 times as much emulsion as a 135/36 or 120 roll.
