substitutions in candy making

When making candy on the stovetop, is it okay to use syrups, like maple or agave, in place of granulated sugar if the granulated sugar's just going to be melted anyway? I'd go in and give it a try myself, but maple and agave are a little too pricey to risk wasting. Also, if I don't want an overly buttery flavor in the final product, can I use unflavored shortening in place of margarine?
