I say "why not?"  It's all possible through magic, of course.
Perhaps some of them were built by the same creatures that
built the "Space Leviathan" ship.

And, of course (here I go...), the gravity for such a hollow
would be "flat" and two directional, allowing existance on
both sides of the sphere (but possibly the outer side has
had a catastrophy or is otherwise inhabitable.  I would
say that this two-sided gravity exists because the hollow
sphere is merely an unusual form of a flat planet (otherwise
the interior objects would fall inward towards the center),
or the sphere is spinning slightly, providing gravity
(like the "spindle" planet in Terraspace).

A spinning sphere would be a good way to introduce extra-strong
humanoids into your campaign ... if the sphere spins fast, a
greater than Earth World Standard gravity arises, and after a
few generations of living on such a planet, creatures would
develop incredible strength (which, in an EWS gravity situation
would be _very_ powerful).

Anyway, Rich, please post your Ringworld data ... I'd like to 
see it.
