Just a simple task question, is it possible to mount PL lenses through PL adaptor on the EF mount BMCC?

Yes it is possible to mount PL to EOS using this mount. But be aware that there are some PL Mount Lens (16mm or 35mm) with a shorter base (<14mm) won't mount.

You could mount some PL zooms (for example Cooke 20-100) and a few prime lenses, but only a few. Flange focal distances for EF is 44mm and 52mm for the PL mount, so many lenses are physically too big to fit on any PL- EF mount adapter. I don't think you could fit the CP.2 in PL mount for example.
