To answer your question, yes you can use the EN-EL18 battery in the MB-D12 grip if you buy the extra cover for it:

With either your EN-EL18 battery or 8 AA batteries, the camera will do 6 fps in DX crop mode only. I believe it's still 5 fps even with that setup in 1.2x crop mode. Where as with no grip will only do 5 fps in 1.2x crop or DX crop. So only reasons to use the EN-EL18 battery, would be if you already have a D4, which you do, and to get even longer battery life compared to 2x EN-EL15 batteries.....

Hope this helps answer your questions.
