The entlib config tool only let's you configure environment overriddes for app blocks.

Can you manually write a .dconfig to configure custom config, or, is it only intended for overridding application-block config? 

Can you still use config protection with this approach?

Environmental Overrides would work for any configuration section as long as you provide design-time support for it since it relies on the ability to load config files using configuration nodes. 

On your second question, I tried specifying a ProtectionProvider for the DAAB section and create an environment where I override it.  It works fine, although you do need to open the resulting file and specify the ProtectionProvider if you want a specific section like the DAAB to be encrypted.
