Also can I flash zip packages like the 4.4 aosp dialer zip I downloaded through SS just like you would in custom recovery?

Yes, you can flash zip files in Safestrap Recovery. As always, create a nandroid backup FIRST as it's always possible that what you're trying to flash isn't compatible and will cause you to bootloop or not boot at all.
