You can use them, but you need to ensure that the hardware wallets use the same address derivation paths. For the hardware wallets you mentioned (Trezor and Ledger) both of them use the BIP 39/BIP 44 derivation paths, so that should work, especially in the case of Bitcoin. However care has to be taken for certain coins (ETH or any other ERC-20 for example) ...

Bitcoin Core uses BIP32, but does not implement BIP39 - As such, you cannot export a set of seed words, since the seed to BIP32 master key conversions is one way only, and it is not possible to obtain seed words if you only have the master key. You should simply back up the master key itself, and import it into another instance of bitcoin core when needed. ...

This checksum is actually just a "part of" the last word, i.e. the last word encodes some of the actual initial entropy, and some of the checksum, depending on ...

You would need to import the 12 word mnemonic you possess into a wallet software in order to generate the private keys. The wallet software will then scan the Bitcoin blockchain in order to see the funds ...
