No. The usage of variation selectors is very clearly circumscribed. The
standardized variants HTML file contains a brief synopsis:
> The tables here exhaustively lists the valid, registered combinations of

> StandardizedVariants.txt are unspecified and are reserved for future

and the TXT file itself says:
> # Warning: Only the variation sequences specifically defined in this
> # are sanctioned for standard use. In all other cases the variation
> # cannot change the visual appearance of the preceding base character
> # what it would have had in the absence of the variation selector.
Anything else is non-conformant.
(And of course this is only my personal opinion, etc.)
