Yes you can. As long as you do not disrupt the air flow around the food. I know some people like to line their air fryer baskets so it's less of a cleanup but the whole point of an air fryer is to allow the air to circulate around the food to cook it. It is best to not line your air fryer basket at all so the food cooks evenly and gets crispy.
Since these are already coated in butter, the risk of them sticking is minimal so you do not need to spray. If you want to be cautious you can spray with olive oil spray.
