Portable apps with asm/hexedit

Isn't it possible to just hexedit the exe of a particular app to set the values/settings it would normally check in the reg or have it read them from an INI? Perhaps add some custom asm functions if necessary? Any reason why people don't?

Generally No

This will usually cause an app's digital signature to break. If the app self-checks for modifications as our installers and launchers do, the app will refuse to run.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
