I am installing my Campagnolo Power2Max NGeco to my Italian threaded BB and noticed that the drive side BB cup has come loose. Can the Finish Line Teflon Grease be substituted for anti-seize? Do I need to purchase a special Campagnolo BB tool or does any standard BB tool work to torque to 35Nm?

No need to overthink this, just screw it into the frame as is, with a fair amount of torque. Screw-in cups won't creak. Even if you suspected they were creaking, they're easy to remove unlike glued-in pressfit cups.
Correct, the beauty of threaded BBs - over-thinking is not a requirement!
