Yes, many do it that way.

You have a 2WD so should be easier, you do need to loosen the oil pan bolts so it drops down in the front enough to get timing cover out and back in then put some sealant around the oil pan gasket before you tighten it back up, not too much though or you won't get a good seal.
Oil pan has no internal pressure, in fact it should have a slight negative pressure if PCV system is working right.
So oil pan gasket is just stopping splashing oil from coming out.
