I'm trying to put a compact crankset on a 7 speed drivetrain with friction shifters. This should work, right?

Also, a 7 speed friction shifter probably won't work the full range of an 8 speed shimano cassette, right?

Yes it will work and yes it will shift the entire range of an 8 speed, adjust the limit screws on the RD.
