Yes, FPP can drive WS2812B pixels.

FPP uses the rpi_ws281x library to drive these on the Pi.

Should be able to drive several of them, daisy chained.

256 pixels per panel, so you could daisy chain 3, maybe 4 panels per output.

That would let you build a panel of 6 easily, perhaps 8. (going with 4 per output "might" be pushing the refresh limit - would need testing.)
