I don't think it's possible.

When you create a custom Ribbon using the Ribbon Designer there's a group of controls you can add but they don't include any panels.

Mind you I've never actually tried adding a control that's not in the group - just assumed you couldn't.

The Ribbon Gallery control may come closest to what you're looking for, which would be a popup with a list of controls from which to choose.  You might like the InRibbon Gallery, which gives you those images/commands inside the ribbon and if there are too many, then the scrollbar appears.

Check out this link:

Google VB.Net Ribbon Gallery or In Ribbon Gallery for examples and 3rd party offers.
