Yes, you can:
go to https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/10-0-project-treble-for-xperia-xzs-2020-03-18.3976367/ then download the zip file and flash vendor.img and boot.img (steps provided in the zip).

then download any android 11 custom rom GSI having arm64 and AB or A/B NOT A only or B only and flash it with fastboot command:
Code:
fastboot flash system <GSI filename>.img
You will need to download and install adb and fastboot tools from google to get the above code working. Also have a bit of patience while first boot your custom ROM after flashing, I will take some time for it to boot up

I have tried:
- Pixel Experience Plus and non-Plus
- Corvus OS
- Havoc OS

How did Havoc OS work for you?

I am always afraid to flash something that doesn't say precisely that it is for the XZs. But I should mainly be concerned about the kernel, right? If the image is wrong it just won't boot? But the kernel can brick it. Is my assumption correct?

Thanks to everyone who help us illiterates out...

Cordially,

Just follow the guide in the xda thread link I gave, you can use and android 11 GSI ARM64 AB image and you will be fine as far as my testing goes...
Just flash the vendor.img, boot.img and after that find a GSI image with ARM64 AND AB(The file name might use some other code name for this so just make sure the one you download has AB partition).

Note: Android 12 won't work and also daily use is not recommended
