Hello, i extended BPMN notation with some custom entities. This entities are represented by custom icons. is it possible to extend BPMN notation in ARIS, for example importing my own icon set?

in ARIS, this is done in a different way. Directly extending the BPMN diagram is not possible, because than it wouldn't be BPMN anymore.

But you can assign a Function Allocation Diagram to any BPMN activity to cover additional details not present in the BPMN diagram. If you look at this Function Allocation Diagram, you will notice it supports many different additional aspects. You probably won't need any additional custom extensions.
