For bottling wine, is it possible and/or a good idea to use recycled wiskey bottles instead of wine bottles?

Most whiskey bottles are white bottles.
So use them for white wines only. When storing reds in them and not keeping them in a dark locker the color might fade.

Second if the caps are allright you can reuse them. But test this thoroughly.
I think the bottles neck might be a bit weak to cork them so use the caps.

I re-use bottles with screw caps for my early drink or table wine just once and then dispose them.

You can buy new screw caps that fit some whiskey bottles at your LHBS. They're called 28mm polyseal caps.
