No. Geany VTE support is compile-time and even run-time option.

However, you can open a new tab in the messages panel from a plugin,
and spawn your program in a vte terminal inside it. There would be 2
tabs with terminals, geany-s and yours; no conflicts between them.

Oh, and you don't have to g_module_open(vte), just link it. If I had
some time and support from the main developers, I would have removed the
runtime option.
