No. Starter comes in the circuit initially and then cuts off once the tube is on. If you use the switch, it wont be cut off automatically. If you want to use the switch manually then it technically possible to do so

No, a switch is used to control the circuit voltage that is applied to the fixture for turning the fixture on and off. The starter in the fluorescent fixture is used to start the current flowing through the filaments in the fixture's tubes. After a specific time, the starter heats up the circuit is opened and the current then flows through the fluorescent tubes.

Can a starter be replaced with a single pole switch?

I recently tried this. Power surges were ruining a security light over the garage. I thought it was overloading the light sensor which turned the light on at night. So I bypassed the circuit board in the light and put a light switch inside the garage. Most CFL bulbs have the starter built-in, and I thought this was the case on this security light. Not so. The circuit board was also the starter. I had to switch to a regular CFL in lieu of using the extremely bright bulbs (without starters) made for this light.
