yes this should be possible unless there's a major air leak

normally the main reciever will retain pressure to allow the brakes to release so I'm assuming that the vehicle can't run the engine to generate air pressure

best place to add pressure is into the existing reciever and will involve removing the existing air feed pipe so you can tap into it
but the system runs at about 6Bar so you should be able to generate that with a regular compressor
