Yes, I believe you can.  Before you start doing this though, read the CR license very carefully.  You are on the edge of having to pay very expensive royalties.

Another problem is how to determine where to new fields go and to make a report that looks professional.

There are ways to do what you want by building the report with all fields and then showing only those fields you desire.
