Sure. Talk to your host.

I kind of want this to scale, with multiple users and everything, and have it add a process automatically on registration (if I can)

If I’m understanding you correctly, this is probably the wrong approach. It wouldn’t be efficient, and I really don’t think a shared host would be happy with you adding dozens of cron jobs.

Start one job, and do {whatever you’re doing} for each user from that one script.
