No, Mycroft can only add search engines that it knows about, and it doesn't know about mine.

If there isn't an entry in the Search Engines to add a search engine like you can see on this forum page (Add "Firefox Help") then you can still consider to use "Add a Keyword for this Search" in the right-click context menu of arch filed on the web page.
