Yes. You can get almost any size you want. Just a matter of how expensive and availability.

Most people just try and get what the local Home Depot, Lowes or P.E. can get.

Do you have to use 5"? Or could you use multiple of a smaller size?

Or maybe consider a slot port?

I seem to recall pricing out 6" PVC (drain pipe) at HD or Lowes and it didn't seem terrible. $30-40?

Two 3" dont give much advantage over the one 4", and take up more vol.

The problem is im trying to build a small 3cuft Ported Sub, 5" port is challenging enough. A 6" port would be even longer taking up more space.
I have found a 5" pvc at a good price.

I only mentioned 6" because that's what I was looking for last.

Much beyond 4", it gets easier to to create a slot port (in my experience)
