Is it ok to just hang a sandbag at the end of the arm near just short of the arm post and then have the sled to the side instead of a weight plate? Would that work for short-term purposes and still be able to use the sled like as if it met the requirements of weight for the arm?

No. You'll have to consider the balance of the rig itself and also how the position and movement of the sandbag will negatively affect operating.
