Yes you can. In fact, the live rock will help greatly to provide stability to a small system.
I personally would not use a Q tank of 1.5 gallons. The difficult in maintaining such a small system will cause more stress on the fish than necessary. Given that you are only going to be keeping 1 fish in a 10 gallon tank anyhow, I just see no reason to quarantine. Select your fish carefully, only buying fish that have been at the LFS for a minimum of 7 days, and watch the fish on MULTIPLE visits to the LFS to ensure it is not displaying any scratching or flashing behaviors.
