If you need a specific codec, you can use it with Custom Codecs feature - but this is typically needed for special cases, e.g. to use an exotic format, or when a specific configuration of the regular encoder is needed (mostly the case for ultra low bitrates). You didn't say what's the problem with AAC in RadioBOSS is. Have you tried using it and faced any issues?

The codec in radioboss aac is a free codec.
The aac-lc is a near loss free codec.
Take a look at their site.
Or take a look at other playout systems why it said they deliver with their playout system.

RadioBOSS doesn't use FAAC. If your installation uses FAAC it means you have a very old RadioBOSS version that needs to be updated. When you select AAC in RadioBOSS it effectively encodes in AAC-LC, and for AAC+ it's AAC-HE (the actual options depend on bitrate).
