Does this product work with regular pex crimp connections and sharkbite fittings?

No. PEX-AL-PEX tubing is installed using compression type PEX fittings. Because of the dimensionals and "memory" properties of PEX-AL-PEX, regular PEX fittings (including crimp style and push-fit style such as SharkBite) will not guarantee a leak-free installation.
