If you're asking in reference to using them inside of camera raw, no, the internal camera profiles are hard-wired into the application (plug-in).
Camera Raw does not support ICC camera profiles.
Capture One, Bibble (I think), and Raw Developer support ICC profiles. There are probably others as well.
The very interesting and free software Rawtherapee support ICC profiles
In recent discussion on NAPP, it is very clear to me that Adobe has made a choice to prevent any custom ICC camera profiles from being used in ACR. WHY? Seems rather sratnge that a software that has com eto integrate ICC profiles and color management between its applications such as In Design, PS, LR etc that allowing custom profiles would be locked out of the import process. So is it really so hard to make a reliable profile(s) or is it that Adobe can't deal with the range of values that those profiles would export. No switch in either PS or LR to allow for use of profiles and other ACR controls.
Knoll explained this in another thread.
Yes you can, but not directly.
- shoot test target in RAW format; expose it properly (see your profile software's instructions)
- convert the test target raw file in ACR using default settings; save as TIFF
- open TIFF in profile software and build profile
Now when shooting regular images:
- convert raw file in ACR using default settings, open in PS
- in PS, go Edit -> Assign Profile and choose your created profile
Whether the results will be any good depends on a great many factors ...
