DNS set up for CloudFlare

Rather than change the name server addresses to point our domain to CloudFlare, can we use an A record?

No of course you cant use the A-Record.

Do you think about “just moving a subdomaion to cloudflare”?
If so: move the NS to CloudFlare and just route the one domain trough it.
Then use CF as a DNS Only service for the other Domains if you wish so, but keep in mind:

Even this will speed up you pages as CF is the fastest DNS resolver in the world
