Can I use the 0805 caps or are there a reason that the little "Can" like capacitors are used?
I also notice that the 0.1uf had a crazy amount of tolerance... -20%, +80% (My feeling is that I should look for another option,right?)

It has a very significant voltage and temperature coefficient. You should avoid Y5V and Z5U in almost all cases. For most hobby projects they might be fine, since they work best at room temperature.
Depending on the input voltage and current used you should pay careful attention to heatsinking the regulator, usually with via-stitched ground planes on both sides but you can also get special SMD heatsinks as well._____Rob
