Sure, it is totally doable. Just try to get the hot wort in without splashing too much to avoid hot side aeration, but otherwise, yep.

I did it drunk once straight into a carboy.

I was EXTREMELY lucky I didnt shatter the carboy and cause massive damage to other drunks around.

You should be fine as long as you avoid splashing to avoid hot side aeration.

I just did a no chill last night into my conical. I used the keggle port and tubing to fill from the bottom up. This morning it is still 100. I don't know how long it will take to chill to pitching temp but I'm starting to get worried. I'll let you know.

I do no chill brewing. I simply pop the sanitized top on the kettle at flameount and move it to the basement. depending upon ambient temps it will take from 18 to 24 hours to drop to room temp. Don't worry about it. Use the time you've saved to do something fun.
