Is it possible to use AMPScript to create/display dynamic content in Marketing Cloud? Will AMPScript do this out of the box?

(I know there's a built-in way to set and define Dynamic Content, but I'm curious about whether this can just be done with AMPScript.)

Yes, you can use AMPScript to create and display dynamic content out of the box. Here's the function reference and list of personalization strings.
