You can use any ship you want, your career doesn't matter. It is important to know that a science officer works better with a science vessel, a tactical officer works better with an escort, and an engineer works better with a cruiser. You can mix and match all you like. I have an engineer flying an escort and it works great.
Science vessels and officers are for healing
Escorts and tactical officers are tanks
Cruisers and engineers would be dps
As for outfitting them, that's a loaded question. The simplest answer is to fly your vessel, learn its weaknesses, and try to compensate with equipment. For example, escorts have weak shields so using equipment that boosts shield strength and regeneration is a good idea.
