can INN be used as a news router just as Cyclone?

Sure, it'll work fine; I run several servers as pure routers.  A reader
server can also route just fine, or you can build a separate dedicated
router if you want (if you do the latter, you can turn off overview
generation on that server; overview is only necessary if the server
supports readers).
