It is possible and it works the same way as adding on your own server at home.

Steps to add a custom module to an odoo installation:

1. Create a custom /addons directory in your filesystem (recommended) or use the default /addons directory of odoo (not recommended)

2. Assure the same access rights as for the default /addons directory

3. Add the path to your custom /addons directory in the openerp-server.conf file

4. Upload your module to that directory

5. Log in to odoo with a user who has "Technical features" access rights

6. In Settings update your module list

7. Install your module in the database of your choice

8. Give me an upvote for my answer :-)

As you can see, there is nothing special concerning an AWS instance, it is the same for any installation.

Thanks Ermin. Can you please elaborate that the way of doing this?

You need a sFTP client for up- and downloading files to/from the server. I for myself feel quite comfortable with FileZilla. Do not forget to add a corresponding security rule to your security group. In my case I have added "All TCP" restricted to my local client's IP address only.
