Can you put banana peels down a garbage disposal?

You can, but the two ends don't always grind up very well. And stringey things like banana peels and celery will tend to cause it to seize up. I would recommend using them in your garden for compost. They are supposed to be really good for tomato and rose plants. It has been not recommended, but I myself have cut 'em up and experimented with it, and it seems to work just find.

To deodorize a garbage disposal you can either put some baking soda in the drain and let it sit for a while or my favorite is to run lemon peels through the disposal after you do the dishes every night.
