I know plasticx is recommended product for plastic use, but can scratchX, swirlx or ultimate compound be used on plastics?

It is not officially tested or recommended, so doing so is purely at your own risk.

That said, I often use M205 to polish out tail lights with great success. Use a test spot, and a little common sense... start with the least aggressive product and adjust accordingly.

I do think snagging a bottle of PlastX is a good idea though as it finishes out extremely well on clear and colored plastic.

I have PlastX and love it, I also use M105 for really bad oxidization on our Yukon Taillights and finish with PlastX.

Haven't tried ScratchX or SwirlX though.....

Give it a whirl and as Mark said, use least aggressive and get a process dialed in.

Can't go wrong with PlastX though. It works great on CD's/DVD's/Game Disks too!

I have some scratches in the face plate of my head unit, as well as my boost gauge, and safc. Not a huge surface area.

For what it's worth, I went over the plastic sideview mirror housings with Scratch-X and Swirl-X using my G110.
