Is it necessary to use AMCL in order to localise and path plan in the navigation stack?

I have a good estimate of the position of my robot in the map from using a kinect and RGBDSLAM. Can I just use this somehow or do I need to localise again using laser data?

In principle you can use any localization method you want. During navigation you just have to look out for how stable and accurate it is.
