Nafl prayers are prayed just like Fard/Sunnah prayers. (Unlike Fard however, you'll also recite a Surah after Al-Fatiha in the third and fourth rakaat similar to Sunnah prayers.)
The intention is different, that's all.

So yes, you can recite any Surahs.

With regards to Nafl Salaah in general, you may recite in them any Soorahs you want. However, in Salaat-ul-Istikhaarah, you should recite Soorah al-Kaafiroon in the first Rak`ah and Soorah al-Ikhlaas in the second.

With regards to Salaat-ul-Awwaabeen, then it is six Rak`aat with three Tasleemaat (i.e. three sets of two Rak`aat). In each set, read Soorah al-Kaafiroon once in the first Rak`ah and Soorah al-Ikhlaas thrice in the second Rak`ah.

وَصَلَاةُ الْأَوَّابِينَ وَهِيَ مَا بَيْنَ الْعِشَاءَيْنِ سِتُّ رَكَعَاتٍ بِثَلَاثِ تَسْلِيمَاتٍ قَالَ أَبُو الْبَقَاءِ الْقُرَشِيُّ فِي شَرْحِهَا يُصَلِّي سِتَّ رَكَعَاتٍ بِنِيَّةِ صَلَاةِ الْأَوَّابِينَ يَقْرَأُ فِي كُلِّ رَكْعَةٍ بَعْدَ الْفَاتِحَةِ {قُلْ يَا أَيُّهَا الْكَافِرُونَ} [الكافرون: 1] مَرَّةً {قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ} [الإخلاص: 1] ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ


مَنْ هَمَّ بِأَمْرٍ وَكَانَ لَا يَدْرِي عَاقِبَتَهُ وَلَا يَعْرِفُ أَنَّ الْخَيْرَ فِي تَرْكِهِ أَوْ الْإِقْدَام عَلَيْهِ فَقَدْ «أَمَرَهُ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ - صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ - أَنْ يَرْكَعَ رَكْعَتَيْنِ يَقْرَأُ فِي الْأُولَى فَاتِحَةَ الْكِتَابِ {قُلْ يَا أَيُّهَا الْكَافِرُونَ} [الكافرون: 1] وَفِي الثَّانِيَةِ الْفَاتِحَةَ {قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ} [الإخلاص: 1] فَإِذَا فَرَغَ قَالَ اللَّهُمَّ» إلَخْ
