Hi, My name is***** you for letting me try and assist you with your question.
The main stringers go front to back with cross bars going from side to side.
Short answer is yes, you can but you would have to cut up the floor and cut out stringers and then add more support to existing ones.
It would be a tremendous task for sure and with the way fuel is made today and going to be in the future a belly tank is a bad idea long term.
The chemicals in fuel will eventually eat a hundred tiny pin holes in the tank causing a potential explosion.
So I wouldn't do it. But anything can be done.
