Yes, they can be fun and sound great. I find I do hammer ons more frequently than pull offs though. There is one song I have that starts with the word "Oh" and is suppose to be played 0-1-2. I strum the 0 and then just quickly hit the 1st fret and then the 2nd. The next note is on the 3rd fret and I strum it. I've tried sliding from the 0 to the 2 but I don't think the sound of the 1st fret rings out with the slide.
Pull offs are more difficult to do, at least for me, and I end up with more of a "boing" sound when I pull. So instead of pulling off, I'll tend to slide down the notes as in a quick 5-4-3 combination. I strum 5 and slide down to 3.
