Hi Anoop,

Ofcourse you can create custom hierarchy field on Account object. You just need to create a custom lookup field on Account with Id of that object(you want to make parent). After this you can link multiple Accounts(child) to a single parent object by populating new custom field with Object's Id.  

I hope you find the above solution helpful. If it does, please mark as Best Answer to help others too.
Thanks,
