i don't think so, the principle is that the external sends
messages to a graphic server which is
embedded in the application's GUI,
that's TCL/TK for PD, don't know of MAX's.

This graphic engine in return generates callbacks
which are registered by the external,
so you have to know what messages
are delivered by MAX's graphic engine.

There's no way of modifying those
messages as we ( except one of us ??? )
don't have access to MAX's sources.

Good luck !!!
