I don't have a crusher (or a press), so I freeze all of my apples and crabapples to make them easier to work with. That should be fine. I use campden tablets at the rate of one per gallon, which is about standard. If you use too much, just stir it up well to dissapate the sulfite.
I haven't used unripe apples, so I can't answer that one.
