When doing sums with mixed numbers, it is often easier to convert the mixed numbers to improper fractions, do the sum and convert any resulting improper fraction back to a mixed number. This is especially true of division, but with subtraction, if the fraction part of the second mixed number is larger than the fraction part of the first mixed number (subtracting the second from the first), this will result in requiring borrowing from the whole number of the first mixed number. Using improper fractions avoids this complication and makes all sums easier.

Yes, you can but you need to "rename" the whole part of the first mixed number.

Subtraction is the opposite operation to addition, so can be used to check an addition by subtracting one of the addends (numbers being added together) from the total obtained to see if the other addend results. This can be used with any two addends including mixed numbers. Working with mixed numbers is often much easier (especially for multiplication and division) by converting them first to improper fractions, doing the operations and converting any resultant improper fraction back to a mixed number.

A mixed number can be changed into an improper fraction

Only if the fraction is improper (greater than one).

To convert a mixed number to an improper fraction, multiply the denominator by the whole number, add that total to the numerator, and put that total over the original denominator.

those two operations are addition and subtraction.

The easiest is to convert both mixed form numbers to improper fractions, do the subtraction (as normal1) and if the result is an improper fraction convert it to mixed form. 1 by converting the improper fractions to equivalent [improper] fractions with a common denominator and subtracting the resultant numerators.
