No, you can't without their permission from a legal standpoint view and can theoretically get into trouble.

if I understand correctly, we may use it in our mod it's legal and if you add it to the texture generator it isn't(because you are distributing your own software)?

IANAL, but probably as long as you do not distribute your mod

No, you can actually distribute it, a lot of mods use Mojang's Texture out there, even famous mods use it

So why, if we can’t use Mojang assets, many of the biggest mods use Mojang textures to make ores (for example)? Because I’m pretty sure that they don’t make their own stone texture.
