Does anyone know if openSUSE rpms can be used in Suse Linux Enterprise
Desktop (SLED)?

I purchased an HP 2133. I'm debating whether to stay with SLED (it
connects at home and at work effortlessly), or move to openSUSE, or
install Fedora 9 (I'm much more familiar with Fedora).

If you're seriously considering Fedora, then SLED is definitely not for you.
Fedora is a permanently-bleeding-edge-if-it-breaks-just-update distribution
where stability is a nice-to-have, not a design goal.

SLED competes more with RHEL, not Fedora. It is a distribution designed for
business use, with longterm stability in mind. The office desktop is
(usually) not a place where you install the latest games and such, it's
intended to be a platform for business applications

SLED can be used together with openSUSE 10.1 packages, but if you have it for
home use, it would probably be useful for you to consider 10.3, or even 11.0
