1gallon batch in a 5 gallon fermenter
 
Would like to do a one gallon test batch and I am wondering if I can do 1gallon batch in a 5 gallon fermenter? Will the excess headspace effect the process?

The excess headspace will be evacuated with CO2. You will be fine.

home depot has 2 gallon buckets that are food safe for like 3-4 bucks, just a heads up :)
