No, air is compressible and you only want fluid that is non-compressible.
Pushing the pedal past half way can get the MC seals past their normal travel position in the bore and get into a dirty region that could cause seal damage. Probably not a concern if the MC is relatively new and the fluid has been flushed regularly.
I would not worry too much about too much pressure from the pedal.
If the pistons are really seized and do not move with reasonable effort, then it is probably far better to send them in to be professionally rebuilt.
