Can I remove those pads and use AS5 in place of them or no?

For the memory, no, too much of a gap. Any place on the Laptop where you have one of those thick blue spongy pads you can't replace with AS5. The GPU core and the CPU core however shouldn't be a problem.. Just scrape off the old gray stuff and replace with AS5 and you should be good.
Just for completeness for people using the search engine....
The only thing that has really been done about the heatpads is replacing them with a highly conductive metal (aka copper). If you want to know more about this then search for a user named Mr. K (this is not really a novice mod however).
