X11 xorg.conf copying

Is it possible to import an xorg.conf file from Debian to Fedora and have it work?
The reason for this is that I have an older monitor that only offers 800x600 as the maximum resolution.

Fedora

Yes it is possible. Make a backup of your old xorg.conf.
mv xorg.conf xorg.conf.old

Then copy the one that you want over.
cp dir/where/debian/xorg.conf/is /etc/X11/xorg.conf

reboot or drop to init 3 (if you haven't already) then init 5.
