Does anybody know if it's possible?
Thanks

Definitely possible.
4.6 Display Control Instructions tells how what to send.
256 x 64 pixels = 16K pixels, so you'll need to create data on the fly so to speak as the Uno (2K), Mega (8K), and 1284P (16K) don't have enough SRAM to hold a complete image.
You could use external (offboard) SRAM to hold images and manipulate them before transferring them to the display.

But this display have 8 pixels per bytes.
