I can't think of any reason they would not work on a fill port. Just be careful with the bulb (common sense stuff--if the fill port is inside your case make sure there is physically enough space to remove the bulb without bending it). Also if the fill port is on the outside of your case...how will / would you route the power wire from a CCFL plug?
The listed bulb lengths take having a D5 end cap into account. IOW a 100mm bulb will fit into a 100mm tube that has a TRP w/D5 on the bottom.
No...sounds like it would look cool, but keep in mind the light is not magic--it will not shine thru solids--turning on the light in your kitchen will not light up your bathroom (thru the walls).
