You can use 3ds max for both the level as the models but you need a different exporter. In case of the models you need the cal3d exporter. In case of the level you need the exporter that is included with CS.
To test a map you export it using the script (see CS/scripts/max and the documentation that is included with that) and then you run the exported map with walktest. This is explained in the documentation of the exporter.
Why do you hate Blender btw? It really is very nice. It is my personal choice for this.
