Not exactly. In 8-ball, anyone can hit the 8-ball into a pocket AFTER all of their balls are off of the table. For example, if you are stripes you cannot hit the 8-ball into a pocket while there are striped balls on the table. If you do, you lose. Some people play the game of 8-ball with the 8-ball being neutral, meaning you can hit the 8-ball first when making combination shots.

Yes. When playing 9 ball, no numbered ball has any significance except the 9 ball.

This requres that the 8 ball be struck and even pocketed if it is the lowest numbered ball on the table.
