Can you put ice in any regular bong?

So I have a 1.5 foot glass bong, I'm using a metal trumpet mouthpiece as a slide (tehe) and I was wondering if I can put ice in it, even if it doesn't have an ice catcher? Also, I'm a little new to using a bong, so I was wondering if I should fill the chamber with water too? Thanks!
