Mostly, no. The MacBook might boot to the DVD from the iMac, but if it allows you to install, don't expect the MacBook to run well. The hardware drivers for your Mac won't be installed. Gray disks are machine specific, and only intended to be used with the model they came with.
More than likely, you'll get a "No" symbol when trying to boot the disk.
If you can't locate the gray disks for the MacBook, you can order replacements from Apple. It's about $40 for both disks and shipping. They'll need your Mac's serial number to ensure you get the correct disks.
Or, depending on what level of Snow Leopard the MacBook came with, you may be able to use the retail Snow Leopard, 10.6.3 disk. Those are $20. Don't just run out and buy one, though. It will only boot Intel based Macs that came with 10.6.3 or earlier. My Mac Pro came with 10.6.4, and the retail disk will not boot this Mac.

That Mac is perfectly compatible with High Sierra which would be the only available update for it at this time, unless you had previously downloaded any others when they were available. Apple removes older macOS versions from the store, so you are only able to update to the most recent one it can support.
Unless there is something wrong with the computer or it has less than 4GB of RAM, it should not be slowed down at all, and may even be a little faster with High Sierra as it optimizes performance.

As you have noticed, Apple is on a mission to remove these kinds of options from the interface. I used to use Jiggler many years ago on a regular basis when I had lots of work to do but didn't want the computer to go to sleep. And then I seemed to stop using it for a long time. Now, I find I'm using it much more again. Now that we have less control over sleeping, I find the computer goes to sleep at very inopportune times, like when I'm trying to download a 5 GB Xcode update.
I'm afraid there is no way to get a separate sleep control back.

FYI I seem to have solved this by removing the bottom of the case (10 Screws) and disconnecting the battery and power for a couple of hours.
Then it booted up no problem. Hope this can help someone.

You can connect the iMac and perhaps the MBP can start up in Target mode (holding T when starting up): if that works you can try the MBP disk as an external from the iMac. But I doubt it.
I can not see that a disk is corrupted by a bad OS. It is just very old (for a HDD) and it died.
I would go for a 250 or 500GB SSD, partition/format it on the iMac, and then install Sierra on it from the iMac. Connect it to the MBP, startup while holding the Alt/option key, select the SSD to boot from and see if it works. When all OK you switch the SSD with the HDD.

If you're asking if that will work with a MacBook Air, yes, any USB 3 external hard drive will work.

The MacBook is a brand of notebook computers manufactured by Apple Inc. from early 2006 to late 2011, and relaunched in 2015. It replaced the iBook series and 12-inch PowerBook series of notebooks as a part of the Apple-Intel transition from PowerPC. Positioned as the low end of the MacBook family, below the premium ultra-portable MacBook Air and the powerfulMacBook Pro, the MacBook was aimed at the consumer and education markets. It was the best-selling Macintosh ever. For five months in 2008, it was the best-selling laptop of any brand in US retail stores. Collectively, the MacBook brand is the "world's top-selling line of premium laptops."
There have been four separate designs of the MacBook. The original model used a combination of polycarbonate andfiberglass casing which was modeled after the iBook G4. The second type was introduced in October 2008 alongside the 15-inch MacBook Pro; the MacBook shared the more expensive laptop's unibody aluminum casing, but omitted FireWire, which hurt sales.[not in citation given] A third design, introduced in late 2009, had a polycarbonate unibody casing and no FireWire ports.
On July 20, 2011, the MacBook was quietly discontinued for consumer purchase as it had been effectively superseded by the MacBook Air whose starting price was lowered. Apple continued to sell the MacBook to educational institutions until February 2012.
A new, redesigned MacBook line was launched on March 9, 2015. Available in silver, gold or space grey, it is thinner than the MacBook Air and removes the traditional MagSafe charging port (along with all other ports, except the headphone jack) in favor of the multi-purpose USB Type-C port. It also features a Retina Display.
On April 19, 2016, Apple updated the 12-inch Retina MacBook with new sixth-generation Intel Core M processors, longer battery life and a new rose gold option.
