Can we use NETWORK SERVICE for clustered SQL Server services? If yes any additional configs needs to be taken care and is this a recomended practice ?

For clustered instances it is highly recommended to use a domain user account. You can see permissions required and provided by SQL setup here

Network Service is a local system account and you wont be able to run clustered SQL Server with this account. You need to create a account in AD which you are supposed to use it as service account
