Yes/no. Yes since f(x) is not a function, but the value of a function at
point x. Supose x=2, do you think 4+=2 make sense ? 

No, GP is not able to handle functions as objects, so you cannot make
operations with functions, or even passing function as parameter. This
is certainly a limitation I will try to remove in my experimental GP
