You can cover just about anything is Famitracker. The key is to know what channel's aren't necessary or can be merged with others. If you have trouble hearing certain parts of the song try using Audacity to isolate channels.

I know that I can cover it, but I just want to know if I can make it sound almost identical to the original or if that's too ambitious.

Oh, I see! I'm pretty sure it's possible. After all, PPPPPP has a pretty similar instrumentation and people make near-exact covers of that a lot. While it would be hard, I think making it exact would definitely be worth the effort.
