I can't see any link or image to the type of fermentation container you mean, but there are different kinds and some would be better than others. Most PP or thick HDPE types would be okay at mash temperatures though, as would stainless of course. PET wouldn't be, glass may be but I wouldn't risk it myself unless it were pre-warmed.

In concept, theres no great harm in having an intermediate vessel to transfer or temporarily hold the wort between mash and boil. But you wouldn't want to actually store unboiled wort if that is the intention.

What Kev said.

The food grade brewing buckets are absolutely fine for transferring wort, although once you get up above mashing temperature (80C+) they get a bit wobbly and I wouldn't like to be moving wort in them, and I definitely wouldn't rely upon the handles.
