Yes

No problem! Simply start the installation and when it comes to partitioning, do the resize (maybe Yast suggests this automatically, but cross-check first, otherwise SUSE will shrink your system partition).

Does it not depend upon the FS on F? Can it still do this with NTFS?

The Yast installer has NTFS resizing capability (parted). I am not sure about FAT, but assume that also.
