Yes you can clip ferret's nails. I just used my regular nail clippers on my ferret but be careful not to cut too short. Just like in cats and dogs, if you cut the quick (that's where the vein runs into the nail) there will be bleeding. It's a good idea to get Styptic powder from the pet store in case you do so by mistake. Just dip the nail in the powder and it'll help stop the bleeding. Putting a teaspoon with some gooey 8 in 1 Ferretvite between my knees always kept my ferret busy licking at her favorite treat while I clipped. She hardly knew or cared what I was doing.
