    Just one simple question really; can I use this on the server where I run ISPConfig and allow customers to use SSH without disabling their capability to login?

    Sure, putty connects to your sshd server and will use the authentication mechanisms you enabled. The sshd server will check normally in the order a) key b) uid/pwd.

    I do this always for myself. But I don't give ssh access to my servers to my customers .....

    Sure, just leave
    PasswordAuthentication yes
    UsePAM yes
    in /etc/ssh/sshd_config.
