Sure can. You'll always want to start your game as Operation Arrowhead since that's the most updated "game exe". ArmA2 and BAF and PMC (from Reinforcements) should all automatically load via the Expansions menu from the main menu in game.

You can than load other mods the same way, or use a launcher like ArmA II Launcher or Six Updater to run more mods. Just make sure you put them in the OA folder for the game to detect them. (I think you're supposed to put them in My Docs\ArmA2 now instead but I resist change!)

Personally I use Six Updater. It's slightly complicated getting it started, but you can load mods and keep them updated with ease using that program.

Six Updater is better to use and has more functionality, ARMA II Launcher is simpler tho, what ever works for you, but I would recommend using one of them if you plan on using addons and mods.

Read this about how to install and use addons:

http://www.armaholic.com/plug.php?e=faq&q=18

Six Updater is nice because it's a launcher, holds multiple profiles of different addons (so a Vanilla, ACE, i44 or whatever other combos you wanted) it also makes downloading and updating mods easy.
