yes, many folks have done just that.
check out the DIY categories in these forums for tips:

still, you'll need to be able to get the trigger signals into your PC; for that you'll need some sort of Trigger-to-midi device, like the ROland TMC6.

there's several gear options out there, but basically you'll need to be able to attach the triggers to your pads, send the trigger signals to something that can read or convert it, and then you'll need software on your PC to turn it into drum tracks. There's a lot of options there too...

I used silicone gel to fix the triggers to the practice pads
This works great because you can peel it off when you don't need it anymore and the gel does ot hurt anything
