Most sites use the standard circle badge, but some like English Language Learners (ELL).SE have a custom badge shape, is it possible for the Chess.SE site to have a custom one too (a rook shaped badge)?

This is currently only done for sites which have a custom design. For sites with the plain Beta design, only the site logo can be changed.

Coincidence or not, new custom designs are currently being rolled out to seven sites (example). We can hope Chess Stack Exchange is one of the next sites, but there are many more sites on the list:

When that happens, one of the designers will post a question here asking for input, and you will be able to post an answer with suggestions. IMHO, a chess piece will certainly work as badge icon, but I'd use a different one than in the logo.
