You can add additional values, though you need to have admin rights.

Go to the custom field you want to edit => configure => Edit Options 

From there you would be able to add new values.

Those are not really "status" in the way JIRA uses the word. I am assuming you are talking about the "state of a particular version"

But whatever you call them, the answer is "no".  They are pretty much hard-coded into the core of JIRA, so you'd need to hack that.  I think, although I'm not sure, you might be able to add more via an add-on, but I'm not sure that the new ones would live alongside the system ones in the same way.
