small paint brush can be used only to clean side of the keys there is no enough space for a small brush to go inside the keyboard

a little bit of downward pressure makes the ends of the bristles bend and go under the keys as you

are doing it--long as its not a brush with really short bristles

Sure. But there is high chance that you may damage it in the process. Are the dirt/dust visible? Does it impair the function of the keyboard?

Probably, the dust have settled for a long time & already stuck.

I myself do not have experience to remove & put back the keys of a keyboard & I probably would not try it for the trouble. If it is not too obvious & the keyboard works fine, I think its fine to leave it alone.
