There is no way to set a form based on a custom table. The form builder interacts with a specific set of database tables and only those tables. It isn't setup to interact with any custom database setup.
You could use a form and using either the confirmation page redirect (which can pass all the data to a confirmation page which can then process it) or the available API hooks to take the data and then insert it into any database you want.
However the forms are designed to be used on the front end of the site, not the back end. But I you could use the available function call to display a form within an admin page.
I's probably doable but would take some work obviously.
