Yes, it's possible. The (new) theming is a bit of a work in progress
(still) but you can already use it. The basic process would go as

1) Install the hildon-theme-tools
2) Install the hildon-theme-layout-3 (that's the bora layout)
3) Copy the hlidon-theme-plankton-3 to your own dir, replace some names 
   in configure.ac (they're documented in the file)
4) Replace the template.png with your own. 

Than, to build the correct debian package you will want to do the usual
search & replace in the debian/* files. 

As I said, we're still working on the theming and there will be updates
coming. Don't hesitate to ask questions though.
