Can you cut ikea pax units to fit in a weirdly shaped wardrobe?

Is it possible to install IKEA pax carcasses into an existing closet and customise the inside fit? I have a built-in closet in my bedroom which just has one shelf and rail going across so doesn't make good use of space. But, one back corner of the closet extends out, giving the closet a weird shallow bit on one side. So I'm wondering if I buy a few ikea PAX units, can a carpenter essentially trim one or two of them down to fit the weird corner and fix everything in?

I have done this before in rooms before where the ceilings were slanted but you have to measure and calculate carefully. It sometimes better to get the carpenter to make bespoke shelving and storage within the unit.
