That isn't what I would call a can't. It's more like it would require some work.
You'd have to make sure that there is space to add a new tile map and then make sure that the code points to it.
RAM space for said new tile map, as an educated guess, shouldn't be an issue as Protoman would have plenty of room since he never appears with any other enemies like any other boss.
And as far as the sprite, if you go for a more compressed look to the shield like in the original sprite it could be reduced down to 344 instead of 3444.
So, it probably can be done. It's just an issue of how much work has to go into it.
Not to mention does this even fall into the scope of THIS hack or is it worth being a hack on its own?
