Yes, you can do what you want. You can use a line type PIO to define the length. Add an extra parameter (so it will show up in the OIP) and put in the default value you want. The user will then be able to change that parameter value to change what happens when the object is refreshed.

You should pick the type of object that matches how you want the user to place the object. If you want the user to just draw a line, pick the line type, etc. 


The various types also only have reshape handles according to their type, so if you draw an oval with the line object, the user can only adjust the height via object info. You can add control points for reshaping, but that adds a fair amount of complexity to the script.
