Write Data Through Shift Register

Hello Community,
I'm going to be making a project soon and I wanted to know if there is a way to write data through the shift register to dim an LED attached to it? the shift register I'll be using is the "74HC595".

Yes.

Thanks after all this playing around I finally got it to work currently only with one RGB LED but still got it to work. Thanks again.
