Yes you can use a 1N4148, but it won't be as sensitive. You could use a 1N34 or similar Ge diode too. Most any small signal device will work, but power rectifiers won't work very well.

The diode is reversed in the bridge because the meter is connected the other way (because it was physically easier or I stuffed up assembling it - can't remember which). It doesn't matter too much, if the meter deflects the wrong way reverse the diode or the connections to the meter.
