Would it be possible for example; to substitute it with the pressure blow-off valve?

Lon time since though, may be wrong.
I think ceramic parts were outlawed with the V8 engine rules.

The MGUH is supposed to contribute 90 kW to the motive power. If they have a waste gate at all it would merely be a safety feature.

You still have to deal with the possebility of turbine choke at high engine speed. Make the turbine large enough to offer a low expasion ratio (less exhaust backpressure) at high speed and the expansion ratio can be a bit too low at lower engine speeds. So a wastegate can still be needed.
One main reason for using teflon tend to be to reduce noise.
Race car engineering has a nice article
I thought that this would be the best application for F1. Particularly if you use an axial turbine.
This is what RCE thinks was originally intended as the 2013 engine.
Here is some text with data. The engine was supposed to have 580 hp without compounding. After the V6 decision the available power will be less. If they set a boost limit to force the engines from 8,500 rpm up to 15,000 the power will be less again. The simulation shows that the original engine plan called for seriously lower revs.

Back pressure is going to increase above 10500rpm do to the fact intake manifold pressure will have to be decreased because of the fuel rule. This will make turbine flow decrease at higher rpm also. In turn less turbine energy to extract.
