If you really want to go to town with your customisation you can copy the QR code and paste it into Illustrator. The QR code comes in to Illustrator as vector paths.

I believe it can.

 

Why not try it - and scan the QR code to see if it works.

Yes and No. When you add the logo after the fact, you are covering over some of the QR code's data, and there's a substantial error correction built-in to the codes so you can "supposedly" cover up to 30% before it fails, but I wouldn't trust that at all. You'd be better off using one of the online generators (there are MANY) that allow you to add a logo during the creation of the QR code, so the data wraps around it.
