Sending raw frames (PF_PACKET) to a host-ap device?

Is it possible to build packets (including any source MAC addr I wish)
and send them with a PF_SOCKET socket?  Anything special I need to do
to make this work (if it can be done?)

And if that works, I am assuming I can put the wlan device in
promiscious mode so that I can receive an answer to whatever MAC
I just created?
