No, you cannot use the Transfer Counters on airside as you are travelling on a low cost airline. You need to clear passport control, collect your checked-in bags and check-in for your next AirAsia flight. Low cost airlines are generally point-to-point carrier unless you are using the fly-thru ticket.

See the bottom part of this page confirming what Kevin wrote:

Departure Hall Terminal 1 will be your Changi counter.

Yes as Kevin said you clear immigration, collect your bags and then go to the check in desks and check in your luggage. Then you go back through immigration again. Note that normally you can only check your bags in 3 hours before your flight.

I did this a few weeks ago and I was lucky that the Air Asia desks were open for an earlier flight as I was able to check my bags in 6 hours before my flight and return through to the transit area where there are a huge range of shops and eating places, a cinema, areas to rest etc. The arrival and departure area outside immigration doesn't have as many options.

Why not just fly directly to BKK from KUL?
