Planted Tank Obsessed

I'm wanting to start a little 10gal tank soon after being out of the hobby for years now (and possibly and/or a 29gal) I don't really remember the cycling process, but I do remember that I think if you have a filter running on an established tank, that you can put it in a new tank for an instant cycle. Is that correct?
At my work there are three huge fish tanks that have been running for years. Healthy, no issues. I've asked, and I'm allowed to attach as many filters as I'd like to seed the media.
So my questions are
1. Can a filter running on an established tank be used to instantly cycle a new tank? Or at least speed up the process?
2. If so, how long should it run on an established tank before transferring to a new tank?
3. They use canister filters, can I just add my own media and not bother attaching a HOB?
Thanks so much!
