Yes, you can train your own tagger using the Stanford POS tagger package.
The best place to start is by looking at the javadoc for the MaxentTagger
class. There's a section in that document for how to train:

"To train a model from the command line, first generate a property file:

java edu.stanford.nlp.tagger.maxent.MaxentTagger -genprops

This gets you a default properties file with descriptions of each parameter
you can set in your trained model. You can modify the properties file , or
use the default options. To train, run:

java -mx1g edu.stanford.nlp.tagger.maxent.MaxentTagger -props

with the appropriate properties file specified; any argument you give in the
properties file can also be specified on the command line. You must have
specified a model using -model, either in the properties file or on the
command line, as well as a file containing tagged words using -trainFile. "

More info on the property settings can be found in that javadoc document as
