Can propane be regulated using a standard paintball marker regulator?

No.

Propane is at a far lower pressure than anything a marker regulator would be useful for, definetly under 100 psi.

It wouldn't be much use.

It can be, bt as Thalion said, it's super low pressure.

my guess would be, find someone professional with propane on forums (general chat or marker chat) and ask around, because propane is kind of dangerous, but people dont forget, the propane is also pressurized in the gun isnt it?

yes it can be just like any other gas for it to be regulated by a paintball reg it needs to be a non asa reg as the threads are different

Don't mess with propane unless you're absolutely certain what you're doing. It's not smart, it's not safe.

You're saying yes, is can be?

umm...NO!

Sorry, it can't, not matter how much you think it can. Propane is a fuel source, its works completely different. The C3 needs a fuel air mix to work properly, a regulator paintball maker will not work to regulate propane.
