Of course you can. For example, DevStack does it. You have to establish a route to the address range if you want to access instances via their floating IPs.

You better use a floating IP. Neutron will ensure that traffic to the floating IP is delivered at the instance. The floating IP is an address in an external network, which is a network in your datacenter. I can't tell you how to reach your datacenter from the PC.
