Depending on the level you are at, yes you can. Everything works, nothing works forever.

If you are a beginner, you will progress easily regardless of how you train. As you improve it will be harder to make gains. You will need to use more effective exercises, like back squats, front squats, deadlifts, etc.

No, I can't write you a leg routine. It depends on too many things I don't know about. What I think is good may be too much for you or not enough.

In general I like power cleans for warm up, then alternate Back Squats and Romanian Deadlifts in one workout with Deadlifts and Front Squats in another. Occationally substitute single leg exercises for these. Finish with calves. I like 5x5 ramped sets. I usually put power cleans into upper body days. It's like a light lower body exercise and helps with conditioning.

If you only want to do the 2 exercises you mentioned, do cleans first. However, I think you could add front squats and deadlifts without needing a squat rack and you would get a better workout.
