Can I use custom CSS on my game/jam/profile

You sure can… but it’s disabled by default. First make sure what you are trying to design can’t be done with the built-in theme editor. If it can’t, then you consider applying for CSS. We manually approve accounts for CSS due to implications about accessibility and long term support of pages when using custom CSS.
