I want to include this sentence in my job rejection letter: Can I have some feedback on why my application was unsuccessful, please?
Can I say that?
You can use "feedback on" as well.
"Feedback for" doesn't really work for me. The sentence you finally decided on is good.
I suggest that there is no point in replying to a rejection letter.
You have not been chosen. That's it, it's all over, nothing more to be said.
But perhaps you and Dominoes live in a kinder, gentler and less litigious place than I. I hope so. It would be nice to live in a place like that.

Within an organisation, I would give feedback on why an internal candidate has not been selected for promotion. Such feedback is useful career guidance. Like probus, I would never give feedback to other applicants.
