I have the 1st edition of Imperium but I am seeing in other threads that the 2nd edition rules fix some problems. Is it possible to play using the 2nd edition rules with my 1st edition components?

I think so. The main difference that I've seen is that, in 2nd edition, appeals to the Emperor cost 2 Glory Points rather than 1.

There's a good summary of the differences here: Major version differences

I think that it is incorrect to label any 1 of the differences as the 'major one'.

There are a few or several differences. All of them favor the smaller ships more than they already were.

For example, the lack in increasing income for the Imperials means that they can't buy bigger ships even if they wanted to take more advantage of the free ship a turn rule with BB instead of DD & CL.

The change for High Intensity missile attacks from double power to a +1 DRM or -1 hit# modifier means that Imperial SC can destroy Terran CR with their SC at long range instead of never being able to do this. It also makes the MB less powerful against Imperial capital ships, if any are ever built. This may be an exception to the rule I stated above.

Etc.

Edit for 1 spelling error.
