Apache Mod Security can be used with SFS db? Or how to protect any CMS

When mine used CMS is not on the list of Mods & Plugins https://www.stopforumspam.com/mods is there any tutorial how to use SFS db anyway to block SPAMmers to load the site?
Can Mod Security or similar casual web server software be used for the purpose to block all listed IPs to access the site?
Firewall based blocking ( http://iplists.firehol.org/?ipset=stopforumspam_1d ; https://gist.github.com/Ne00n/80bdcb1fabff690404a1f1645041b615 ) is not the case as this is shared server used by other people too.
I see on API usage page https://www.stopforumspam.com/usage are some examples for PHP, yet my CMS .php files has Ioncube encrypted code, i doubt it will work when i insert additional code. When i pasteto second line: echo "abc";
it says: The encoded file submitticket.php is corrupt. in Unknown on line 0

If you find a method to achieve what you are suggesting, then you & your server will be permanently blocked from accessing SFS. The reason for this is that you will, by definition (see Notice within the API Usage page), be using SFS as your software Firewall, and that is activity that can quickly bring SFS to it's knees.

If you wish to do something of this sort, then select one of the available downloads, download it to your server (perhaps update weekly), and use that to populate your local firewall.

ZB-Block (.net) is probably more what you are looking at.
Using that on login pages along side an addin to refer to SFS.
