Yes it is possible, I'm not sure it is properly documented.

In your page, use (:include Templates.Navbox Name="Michael Fake" 
Address=example at example.net Title=CIO:)

(Quote the values if they contain spaces.)

And in the template, have {$$Name}, {$$Address} and {$$Title} which will be 
replaced with the variables in the "include" line.

The difference with MediaWiki is that we don't have yet a way to define 
default values if the page sets none.
