Yes, your idea should be possible!
Your best bet is to start off with some simple tutorials (tutorials section), and also check out the 'How do I', faq. These should be enough to get you started.
After that you can always ask others for help in the forum (the C2 community are a really friendly and helpful bunch).
Hope that helps, good luck!
