I personally would always scratch the chrome off as it is a very slippery service

No you can't, You must only use compression with JUST chrome pipe.

The press acts mechanically on the fitting without strain on the pipe. Not sure which system you're using but that's certainly true for Geberit.

Yes you can use push fit on chrome pipe work. It wouldn’t look to good but it will work.
