Is there any way I can do the above?
Just add some Buttons and give them the F keys functions.
Just like this.

You can also make this appear only in some programs you'd like, and keep it closed/use the original Touch Bar for all the others.
So, I am using the same logic. I am a developer and I've been working on a software for an external device that has a remote controller. To simulate the controller I use the F keys. Using BTT's alternative crashes my OS X binary, whereas using the native control strip keys doesn't. I can't explain it, anyone ever had a similar issue?
@Caliguvara How do you give a button an F key function if you don't have F keys?
Actions Assigned only lists F13 to F18.
cant you just set this in native system preferences?
Add a button with as associated action "Keyboard shortcut". Then press fn on the keyboard and the F1 Key that appears from the normal TouchBar.
