I believe, it is possible to enable PunkBuster in Battlefield 1942 v1.612 (Origin) server and client, but players, with latest PunkBuster installed, will most certainly be kicked out of server because of memory violations, because they have a different executable than BF1942.exe (v1.61), which PunkBuster was designed to scan.

I've been able to fire up Punkbuster client side by simply dropping in the PB files from my retail installation. But as Tuia has said, PB is likely just going to cause more problems then it's worth right now since PB won't recognize the Origin EXE as a valid game and will mistake them for illegal file mods and boot them from the server.

I have cameras in your head!

As Punkbuster also has dropped active support for BF42 for quite some time now, it makes even less sense to rely on it. Every hack/cheat that works on 1.612 will continue to work for eternity.

Just as a side note: Even Battlefield 2 mods like Project Reality have dropped Punkbuster due to it causing plenty of issues and offering near-zero benefits in terms of cheat protection by now. More trouble than it's worth.
