Don't see why not - the EPA restriction apply only to large quantity purchases of most refrigerant gases and on installing/using it, not the component parts other than to prohibit manufacturing or import of R-22 units that are pre-charged.

It would not be practical or to any advantage to try to ship it with any gas in it, so would just be shipped as a part, because it is just a hunk of metal tubing.

The gas canister (the "bottle" holding the new gas) has to be shipped as a compressed gas container so listed as such on manifest and shipped by truck/ship/rail only, not by air, but otherwise than that I have never seen (though individual states like California may restrict or prohibit imports) any restriction on interstate shipment of HVAC parts other than that sort of safety limitation.
