From a cursory look at the AUR PKGBUILD for storrent-git it seems like it could be supported.
The process would start by making sure that it can run in freedom under Parabola (check the wiki on libremakepkg), and seeing if there is a need for this from enough users to justify maintaining it.
I would advice checking if something similar can be achieved by using one of the already-available bit-torrent clients in Parabola, I do remember transmission being able to stream while downloading IIRC.

I tested PKGBUILD of AUR (https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/PKGBUILD?h=storrent-git). The program works.
