Yeeeeaaaah I'm a newbie, so please excuse me If my question may seem stupid.

Anyway, I was wondering If I can use Blank firing weapons in a reenactment.

I'm assuming that you're talking about the blank firing pistols offered by IAR or some such company? I don't know of any blank firing muskets (although I'm hardly an expert).

Your question could best be answered by your unit. My own 2 cents is that the money you save by getting a blank firing weapon (especially the pistols)isn't going to be that much from what you'd be able to get with a decent reproduction black powder firearm. Another thing to remember is that pistols weren't all that plentiful, even with cavalrymen, and all but non-existent with infantry.
