​Everything is possible, but ReaR is not made for this job. You could
always plug in your own scripts into the appropriate location. ReaR is
basically nothing more than a sophisticated framework to execute Bash

But please keep in mind that the main purpose of ReaR is to provide
bare-metal disaster recovery, preferrably in extension to your existing
backup solution. If you don't have any backup solution then ReaR also
offers a primitive file-based backup with rsync or tar. But this is really
simple and you will have to solve all related problems (e.g.
time-consistent backups, multi-host orchestration, site-wide backup
reports, backup media management, tape robot support etc.) yourself.

My advice would be therefore to first research backup solutions and methods
and then see where ReaR can extend that with bare-metal capabilities.
