Tone conversion from scanned B&W film

I'm just wondering if this is possible?

When shooting panchromatic films, photographers often use filters of a certain colour to alter tones in the picture.

Can a photograph, shot on a normal range panchromatic film, without filtration, have it's tones altered later on in PhotoShop after scanning, and would the results be as convincing?

Would it be very difficult to do using the separate R, G and B curves?
