When you make popcorn balls, can you also use other popcorns like caramel corn?

Yes, you can use other kinds of popcorn. If you use caramel corn, keep in mind that the end result will be sweeter because the popcorn is already coated in sugar, and you're adding more to it. You can also add extra dried spices, like cinnamon or a pinch of spicy cayenne pepper to plain popcorn to give the finished popcorn balls a burst of flavor.
