[Zope] newbie: ZTP in Plone

I can see why it's not possible to add ZTP via the Plone interface, but I
don't see why it's not possible to extend the Plone site via the ZMI.  If
I want to mix content and scripting then surely I don't have to start from

I'm trying to make a site that has areas where users discuss stuff etc,
but which also contains some dynamic pages displaying data in a database. 
Can I not build on Plone for that?
