If your aim is to modify the filling, yes, but reduce the amounts of pumpkin and/or apple to keep total volume the same. If the aim is to use up delicious pastry cream, save it & plate as swirls or dots on the dessert plates, then a piece of galette on top.

I have made this galette several times and it is delicious as-is, but the pastry cream sounds like a delicious addition, it seems like it would "custard up" the pumpkin part - how could that be bad???

How exactly would you be adding the pastry cream? I'd be concerned about it possibly separating and also making the fruit look muddy.
