No. Replacing cyan with a Pantone in a 4 color separation would be a complete waste of time and money. You have no clue how Pantone is used, please stop spreading misinformation, you are not qualified to explain printing systems.

Pantones are SPOT COLOR. They are used for color matching consistency as a single color, not for accuracy in CMYK separations. If I handed files over to a prepress department replacing the cyan channel in that image with a Pantone, I'd be laughed at, and fired for being incompetent at my job.

Here is how Pantone would be used in a typical application - four color separation for the image, and a called out Pantone for a fifth printing plate using Pantone 541.

This is part of what i do for a living. This is how it works.
