Even if it's possible it would result in a large gap in the chart (between those hours), since the time axis is fixed (only scaling can be changed). I am guessing u don't want that...

Option one is to use offline charts and remove the periods. Search for Constant Range Bars and Renko Charts.

Option two is to simply draw a rectangle over the area
