  • You can if you make a SharePoint hosted app, then you can use App permissions. Same is true for Workflows, they also use app permissions, but then you don't need to add an actual app file

  • If you need elevated privilege while write custom solution in JSOM then reconsider your architecture. JSOM was never meant for impersonation. Try to abstract out the functionality that requires impersonation and run it separately OR redesign the app as provider hosted app.
