Is it possible and reliable? Need to ditch the vinyl tubing the stainless steel IC came with. Was thinking of soldering copper tubing to it, but not sure about the different metals...

Yes it's possible. Standard solder will work but you need a special flux. Check the silver soldering ss thread. If you bring it to a welder you can also weld stainless to copper
