Yes, is the answer, but its not a direct answer. If you have normal hognose, they normally are not red. Some locals have reddish individuals. You can line breed those and make redder individuals.
If you have normal albinos, you can out breed them to red hognose, and back breed and intergrade the red into that normal albino line. Then selectively breed those enrich the quality of red.
These days there are all manner of Albinos already out there. I have both normal albinos and Red albinos, that I picked up at shows or from breeders. With hogs these days, they may look like one thing and carry genes for all manner of morphs. Recessives or carriers are commonly sold as normal. I don't think to many breeders are breeding for normal.
I hope someone gives you a better answer. Mine is pretty basic.
