No, Discoverer is for selecting data only, so no PL/SQL. However, if you can find a way to "hide" (call) your procedure in a function, you could call that function in Discoverer.

Register the function in the EUL and enable it for use by end-users.
See the documentation: http://download.oracle.com/docs/html/B13916_04/calculations.htm#sthref798, "About registering custom PL/SQL functions"

Just a quick question, in case i have a sql script (find attached) that produces a report and i want to use discoverer instead, how would i build a report just like the one the sql script produces ?

Thanks

Do you have a sample of the required output?

Basically, Discoverer can only do select. So, if you have some PL/SQL code (like your script), you somehow have to turn that into plain SQL for Discoverer to be able to use it.

Your code looks as if with some clever case when statements it should be possible to rewrite it using only SQL, right?
