I have several frames half filled with pollen from a deadout, the cells are about 1/2 filled. Is it OK to use in installing a package ?

It depends on the reason for the deadout. If they failed because of something like a lack of stores or they couldn't break cluster to reach food the pollen is probably fine to use. If the deadout was caused by a contagious source such as nosema, foul brood, or a bee virus you would be spreading it around your apiary.
