As long as you have 4 conductors between the receptacles it will work.

I still wouldn't do it like that though, I would pull a 14-3 from switch to switch, then a 14-3 from the switch with the feed to each receptacle. This way you can half switch the receptacle.

Only thing the outlets are used for is shop lights and drop lights the kind you plug in outlets mounted in the ceiling. But yea if they were in a wall like a lamp that would be cool. My old job the one room was like that all 20 outlets.

You need this. Replace lights with receptacles.

Yes. Whenever there is a black and red I always use the black as the unswitched and the red as the switched.
