This has been occasionally debated at vdip. My question is is it possible to add a 3rd unit type to some variants?

Not without substantial rewrites.

Fig is right; changing the behavior for the given units wouldn't be too much work if you took the time to learn the adjudicator structure, but adding entirely new unit types would take quite a bit of work beyond the flexibility that the built-in variant architecture allows

Some might argue that when you start adding other unit types it becomes more of a different game than a variant (but you can still fork webDiplomacy for whatever you have in mind of course)
