It all depends what you mean by a custom event. If you want to send an
event with a special name but no special data attached, you can do
this easily with standard DOM API.
var event = document.createEvent("Events");
event.initEvent("specialName", false, false);

You can send an event to any event target object, which can be any DOM
node or other type of object, and the listener would need to be
attached to that object, the one you send the event to. Your question
isn’t specific enough.

mostly complete; the ones done with COM on Windows are enough for
Safari but are incomplete, and are likely missing some things you’d
need to deal with custom events.
