Believe me I've tried, and after hours of toiling I can't figure it out. I'd say no.

yes, you can. I have done it before (to get my sig images)...
Creating Demos: To make a custom demo of any length, you must be in Singleplayer mode, or on a server of your own creation (See Local Servers below) - you can't record your own demos on Multiplayer Internet servers. To start recording a demo, use the demo.recorddemo [demoname] command in the Command Console (See the Advanced Tweaking section). When you want to stop the demo, use the demo.stoprecording command in the console. Your demo has now been saved as a [demoname].bf2demo file in your Program Files\EA Games\Battlefield 2\mods\bf2\Demos\ directory.
This also works in local servers that you create, so it isn't singleplayer only.
To load it up, I use a program called Battlelauncher. With this you can change settings such as nametags etc. Only problem is it will change some file that PB doesn't like you changing, but there is an option in the program to restore the backup it makes.
