Can I use a 3/4" PEX x 1/2" Female Threaded Drop Ear Elbow and a galvanized nipple from the valve to to tub spout?

No, for one you would wring off the PEX when trying to get it tight.
I'd also never use a galvinized nipple for this, even though I know most people do because there cheap.
At some point they will all rust out from the inside out and leak.
