Best answer: Maybe, but we really don't know right now. It seems likely though since in a now-deleted thread on LinkedIn, a PlayStation executive said that the hardware is "also customizable in ways previous gens weren't."

Can I customize my PS5?
Right now, Sony has not explicitly stated that the PlayStation 5 could be customized. With that said, Sony's VP of UX design at PlayStation, Matt MacLaurin, made some interesting commentary in a thread on LinkedIn (spotted by The Verge) that has since been deleted. MacLaurin stated that "This [hardware] is also customizable in ways previous gens weren't," indicating that maybe players can do something to customize it on their own.
What about special edition consoles?
No unique special edition PS5 has been announced...yet. With that said, some special edition consoles will no doubt be announced later on to coincide with major PS5 games. In the very same (now-deleted) LinkedIn thread mentioned above, MacLaurin said that "there will be a special edition for everyone."
We'll likely have to wait a while before any of these special edition consoles are announced, but rest assured, they are coming. Sony has announced two different PS5 models: a regular version with a 4K Blu-ray drive and an all-digital edition. It'll be interesting to see the breakdown in which versions get special edition models.
