You can: just stick them all in the custom fonts directory and it should just work. (What fonts have you tried?)

Note that you'll only see one font in the font chooser: italic etc will be used as appropriate. i.e. you can't get a book to be typeset entirely in italics without editing the font to make the italic version appear to be a non-italic one, but you can upload italic and non-italic variants and the italic will be used as appropriate. The system will synthesise italic and bold if need be, but the synthesised versions usually look quite a lot worse than the real thing.
