Should I put AS5 on the 7900GTO? Also, can I use AS5 instead of the thermal pads on the memory?

The GPU core is no problem but if I were you I would not use AS5 on the memory. Just use some silicone paste (definitly better than the thermal pads as long as there isnīt a too huge gap) on the memory to be on the safe side.

I was kinda thinking that. Something like the AS Ceramique?

AS Ceramic should be fine since it doesnīt include any metal particles (AFAIK), but make sure the HS has contact to the memory chips. Some manufactures use extra thick thermal pads to make up huge gaps between the chips and heatsinks.
