No, not even close. We require GPL-Compatible licenses on WordPress.org.
Neither that nor the "extended" license qualify.

The things you need to look for when evaluating a license for GPL
Compatibility (note, "free" doesn't necessarily mean "cost" here):
- Free to use the code for any purpose (meaning "non-commercial" is not
- Free to modify the code
- Free to redistribute the code, modified or not
- No additional restrictions

If it satisfies those, then it might be acceptable. Most custom licenses
miss one or two of those.
