Yes. I think you can microwave just about anything that will fit inside one. Now, before you do this, the question should be, "Is is safe to microwave a Golf ball?". To this I would answer that it would totally depend on the time, 10 secs. vs. 5 mins., to which I would answer that the former would probably do nothing and latter could be potentially harmful and possibly dangerous. I would not do it.

Yes, you can but the outside of the ball ( the hair ) would melt.

Even the inside core could start to melt.

I wouldn't do it if I were you

How long does a tennis ball last?

A tennis ball may deteriorate for a number of reasons, including usage (i.e., being hit) and the environment (i.e., heat and humidity). Left alone, a tennis ball would, eventually, lose air through osmosis of the rubber core and felt coverings. When struck, the air is forced out little by little. Heat forces air to escape more quickly, and the effects of humidity and being struck wear out the felt covering, as well as causing tiny cracks and holes in the felt and rubber from which air will escape.
