      I would like to know if porous zone in fluent could be substituted for a body which has small holes all over its body for passage of fluid.

      Yes can be but you need to know pressure drop versus flow velocity or flow rate or if you can assume the whole thing as packed bed and you now the diameter. More infos can be obtained in the Fluent User's Guide.

      You can but the meshing requirements will be very expensive and hard work
