We only support the in-kernel default suspend-to-disk and suspend-to-ram
implementations. We don't really support any other implementations of
the logic upstream, and especially not out-of-tree ones.

You can of course override the implementation of systemd-suspend.service
and system-hibernate.service, to whatever you like.

However, I really wonder, what's wrong with the normal in-kernel
implementations? Why use something else?
