Yes, you can draw such diagrams in yEd. However, there is no layout algorithm in yEd to automatically arrange such diagrams - i.e. you have to place nodes and edges manually (which is thanks to snap lines not difficult to do).

Sample graph.

If you click on thomas.behr's sample graph, you can see in the Properties view that
* the yellow squares with text inside is from Flowchart.
* the ports are additional labels, where the label icon has been set to a yellow rectangle.

It would be great if these were part of the UML palette by default.

If not, it would be great if someone could create a complete UML pallete and export them for us to import.

In the mean time, open the Sample graph, copy the bits you need and paste into your own diagram.
