I have a 10 frame hive that I would like to put a shallow honey super on but I'm going to switch next spring to all 8 frame stuff. Can I put a 8 frame super and queen excluder on and maybe add some wood shims on the sides or should I just buy a 10 frame queen excluder and super.

No problem. I've seen it done and it works. But, if the bees have honey in the top box, you don't need the excluder. Unless the queen is laying real close to the tops of the top bars.
