Yes we can pass but the function should return a value of type appropriate for the calling function



About performance, it depends upon the computations you will be performing inside that function. Also, if we are using (user-defined) function in SQL (rather than creating PL/SQL), then it will give better performance.

While using user-defined functions, we need to avoid Mutating functions error.
