Yes - the notebook cluster panel is just a very thin wrapper for
ipcluster.  So if you create a profile that starts engines via
PBS/SGE/SSH, etc. that will happen when you start a cluster from the
panel.  Similarly, you can start a cluster from the panel and add
engines to it with `ipengine` and/or `ipcluster engines` in all the
usual ways.  There is nothing special about clusters started from the
notebook panel, other than that they can also be stopped from there.

The one thing you cannot do yet is actually edit the config files for
those profiles from the notebook interface - for that, you need access
to the filesystem, or you can do a dirty version by writing the the
config files with the `%%file` magic in a notebook.
