Yes, both of those can help. Maltodextrine is an unfermentable that can be added to help with the mouthfeel/body as well. This will boost SG and will not ferment out leaving you with a high FG or you can add it at bottleing/keging.

sure. just throw it into the wort during the boil. it won't care if your wort came out of a mash tun or a tin can.

lactose will also give a nice creamy mouthfeel, but will contribute to a slight amount of sweetness. use it in stouts or porters. flaked barley and oatmeal give a nice silky mouthfeel.
