Yes, 老 (lǎo) can be used in a similar way to the English word “old” to mean “often, regularly; for a long time; very”. For example, 老朋友 (lǎo péngyou) means “old friend”, and 老客户 (lǎo kèhù) means “old customer”. It can also be used to describe something that has been around for a long time, such as 老房子 (lǎo fángzi) meaning “old house”. Additionally, it can be used to describe something that is very familiar or well-known, such as 老把戏 (lǎo bǎxì) meaning “old trick”.
