    Yes, if you prefer, but the taste will most likely be different.

    chicken broth will give you a lighter product, probably goes better with butter and mashed potatoes. beef broth is totally useable too, might be a bit saltier though. Also depends on what you're serving. I think it would be good to match broth with the type of meat. ie. chicken broth when eating chicken.

    Sure you can it may effect taste and color. The kitchen is a great place to play mad scientist thats how all the great new recipes are discovered.

    Absolutely yes!   I have used vegetable broth, beef, pork, chicken, and turkey before. Each one of them imparts it's own unique flavor to the potatoes. 

    Beef course is more robust, so you should use it when serving beef or lamb or even a game meat. Cut back on the salt used in preparation.

    As mimind pointed out the kitchen is a great place to experiment with food. I do it all the time, some successful, some had to go to the rubbish bin, but we then lean from those mistakes and move on. 

    Good luck...
