In current version 8.0 the answer is no, but let us plan this feature in the following releases. Thanks!

Technically it is possible, but you won't get the results you're looking for.

In Windows Explorer you can go to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup then go to File > New > Shortcut and browse to the FontExpert.exe application to add it to the StartUp sequence. This will load Font Expert every time you start Windows, but rather than have it running in the background it will actually load the program and run it (so it opens).

Hopefully in the next release/update Proxima will enable background-Start Up so that the program loads on boot but doesn't actually open the application; this would get rid of the significant load time when you start the program manually for the first time.

Yes, it is easy to implement in FontExpert Setup, which could add a FontExpert shortcut to Start/All Programs/Startup menu.
Actually, any user already can add this short cut to Startup menu manually. But in this case it is better to start a program as an icon in the right bottom corner of the screen near the clock. Running "as icon" is not implemented yet in FontExpert.
