Given that (in theory) kinematics (forward o inverse) doesn't care about dynamic parameters such as mass or inertial matrix /Ixx, Izxy, etc.( related to links and so on. Can I perform inverse kinematics using move it! plugin in Rviz without defining dynamic parameters in the URDF file?

The URDF format doesn't require the dynamic parameters to be specified (see here). If you already have a moveit_config package created with the moveit setup assistant from the URDF then you can run the "move_group.launch" file there which provides a number of services. One such service is the "/compute_ik" which returns a joint solution for your robot.
