I am developing a custom theme and am wondering if it is possible to make it a Builder theme, that is not a child theme? Example, convert a theme to become Builder compatible.

Welcome to the forum!

You can start with nothing but a blank style.css (other than comments header indicating that it's a child of Builder) and still use it as a Builder child theme.

Here is more info: iThemes and Child Themes – introduction and Child Themes, a quick tutorial.
