Yes, any bean can be fermented. Black bean is common, for example, but you can certainly experiment. This site might be a good starting point. They recommend rehydration, then cooking, prior to fermentation. They recommend using yogurt, a commercial starter culture, or a brine from lacto-fermented vegetables to get the process going.
