Yes. This is called 'port forwarding' or 'redirection' (RDR).

For this to work, you must set the modem-router to forward whatever port 
to whatever LAN IP address. You might need to have fixed IPs after all. 
(Its what I did for my servers, with DHCP over a restricted range for 
the rest.)

Or, you could do something clever with a DMZ.

Good luck,
