I bought some tall leggy capsicum seedlings. Can I plant the deep into the soil like tomatoes or should the soil be at the same level?

You probably could. Don't buy leggy seedlings.

Tomatoes planted deep produce more roots up the stem that is in the soil. Caps probably don't meaning the root system is 4-6-8

When planting the roots deep remember you have to be able to get water down that far when watering.
