No, not necessarily.

... as long as the pins (channels) are not actually being used 'now' you can use them for what-ever you want. But, that's a big if.  If a driver is running that uses the channel, you will need to stop and unload the driver... but, you don't necessarily have to edit the dtb|dts in order to do this.

That said, it is best to use GPIO pins that are 'free' first.  On the diagram , the green and then maybe the blue. The main exception right now is the pin(7) GPIO04 which is s-pwm and used for the LCD backlight... because it is on a pwm channel even though you can turn it on and off (if you have the correct base address, or use sysfs) it still doesn't work right, because it is 'very' dim ... and, it has a pwm signal on it.  In this case you must not only edit the dtb|dts, but also unassociate the pin, and you need to stop the driver and unload it (a lot of work, just use another GPIO pin).
