Hi Carlos - Yes, as the rules indicate, 'Pawns can promote to any non-king piece.' And yes, a Horse-apult can toss another of its kind... friend or foe. As a note, I'd like to toss a pawn (my own) into the promotion zone, promote it to a Mace, and wipe out an adjacent enemy King... that would be a fun conclusion to a game. Best regards.
