Can I use a growing tent as a dark room?

Well, if it is indeed light tight, then you are golden. But may be unecessary unless you plan to 'print' in there as well, and part of the printing process would REALLYbe helped by running water, and a sink.

Now you need an enlarger, three trays a little larger than your largest print, but one of them as large as space can accomodate. Uber light tight in this situation? Mehh. Not really.
