I'm not sure what you mean by "customize," but I suspect that
the answer is "no."  The Format -> Font menu on the front end
determines its subcontents based on what fonts are supplied
by the operating system.  There is no way to add, remove, 
or rearrange the order of these items, short of uninstalling
fonts from the operating system (or windowing environment, if
you run Mathematica on a Unix system).

If you are looking for a way to manage the appearance of text
in your notebook, you may want to consider changing font settings
in your notebook's style sheet rather than repeatedly manipulating
font settings from the Font menu.
