Tape wrapping on a capstan shaft is commonly due to a sticky pinch roller or capstan shaft but is also because the take-up reel table does not provide enough torque or tension to gather up the tape. The Teac MTT160 cassette is a test tool we use to determine what the deck is doing torque wise. Telex probably has something similar. I worked with a guy who worked at Telex in the tape business- He did not talk about them much but he did say they had a lot of belts in them. Maybe you are just dealing with a belt that needs to be replaced. Lubrication also tends to be needed at every rotation point as well. That would include reel tables. I hope this gives you some help as Telex repairmen are getting to be like Hens teeth.
Is this a big bass hum? Are you in the USA? These are all mostly pretty old units by now but pro equipment none the less. It's got circuitry problems but may be worth repair as I'm not sure anything like this is made anymore.
You should be able to do that with it, but note that this is a mono copying machine rather than stereo, so it may not entirely write over the existing recording if it is in stereo and the heads are in a slightly different position, but that would be the same for a stereo recorder too.
I think it will work, but really for decent recordings, I wouldn't recommend 'recycling' tapes in this way, they deteriorate fairly quickly.
