Does the yeast impart that much flavor that it would change the overall flavor of the batch?
Yes, but there are so many variables that it's hard to say whether or not you'd be able to tell the difference. In any case you'll still be making beer, and you may even like it better. Don't think of it as "You can't use yeast x for beer y," but more like "Yeast x is well suited to beer style z."

Stop using so much caramel malt. Your beer will thank you.
(yes, Carapils is a caramel malt...so is Special B)
