Adding cooked or dried beans directly into slow cooker recipe?

I've gone on a bean kick recently and have been making them in the rice cooker. However, I'm wondering a few things about how my bean usage would work with my Crockpot (my residence doesn't have burners):
- can you add dried beans directly into a recipe for the slow cooker, eg chili? It seems to me like the beans should cook through that, provided there's enough liquid.
- conversely, will cooked beans become too soft if I put them in the slow cooker?
- as a side note, does anyone know any good slow cooker bean recipes that aren't stews, chilis or baked/refried beans?

Thanks!
