proxy_cache is for nginx to cache the response from a proxy_pass request
to an upstream server.
fastcgi_cache is for nginx to cache the response from a fastcgi_pass
request to an upstream server.
"Sending http headers so that the client can be invited to cache the
response from nginx" is independent of both.
So the answer is "yes, depending on what exactly you want to do".
