Yes that is perfectly fine. Electrically it doesn't matter if you go to the sub or the power amp first so use whatever wiring scheme is logistically convenient.

This will be used by multiply people a week mostly who have little to no experience. I would like to use the driverack as a way to keep the novice users from blowing the speakers out and keeping the EQ steady.

Any tips or things to look out for would be much appreciated!

A driverack isn't going to keep people from blowing stuff up unless you set the limiter VERY conservatively. If you want to make the system idiot proof, you need to make sure to have WAY more rig than is needed, and even then, idiots will find a way to make a mess.

Once you get it setup to your liking be sure and password protect the presets.

Interesting, so I could in theory use the crossover in the PX500 and just send a signal to the QSC sub even though it has it's own amp? I was worried about sending a powered signal to the sub. So that's a non-issue?

Yeah I'm guessing the limiters in the amp and sub will be enough but I'm still wanting to explore using the driverack to prevent a DJ/KJ pushing the system way to hard.
