Absolutely, you can create a custom field on the skills object to track different levels of proficiency. Usually it is a picklist with either numerical values or the descriptors you mentioned (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, etc.)
The skills functionality is pretty basic. It works fine for what it does. It seems to lack the ability to associate a persons proficiency to the skill.
For example, we have a skill called "Integration" but we also have users that have basic Integration skills (proficiency), intermediate Integrations skills and expert integration skills.
Is there any way to configure in such a way that we can track this?

This doesn't seem to work as you can only have 1 distinct skill name. Another option would seemingly be to have each skill "proficiency" be its own skill but I think you can see that would get quite messy as well. It seems like we need the ability to have a relationship where someone with a skill could have a distinct proficiency (see below)
Ah, I think I see the issue. Instead of creating the custom field on "Skill" you would set it on "Skill Link." This is the database link between resources and skills so that each resource can have their own personal setting for each skill.
Yes! Thats perfect. Thank you.
