Can you add checkers for the various DeLorme challenges?

It's technically not a problem. But for each challenge and each page, someone has to define the pages as coordinates. For example with a top left coordinate and a bottom right coordinate. If you know of such lists, feel free to add that information to your question, and it will increase the likeliness of anyone doing this, a lot.

If such lists exists, the rest is very easy.

 

You should also know that most checkers are provided by users of Project-GC with our plugin-language. I just wanted to make that clear, since I had a feeling you did not know.

I haven't seen a DeLorme map, but most atlases also tend to have various places where the map shown isn't really square to squeeze in some weird-shaped area of the country. This kind of thing also has to be taken into account (a very long and narrow island may be split in half and both halves shown on the same page, for instance).
There are now three delorme challenges available:
Alabama, http://project-gc.com/Challenges/GCTTNW/1116
Colorado, http://project-gc.com/Challenges/GCWXFK/1107
Georgia, http://project-gc.com/Challenges/GCZ8XQ/1115

It will be possible to create more checkers for delorme-challenges,  but I'd like to wait and see how the first three work out. Some of the challenges have slightly odd criterias, these three are quite straight forward.
