Using the default RTE is best practice.

However - if you want to use something else in say a Dialog component field - creating a custom resource type comes to mind as a possible solution. Like shown in the article below - you can use a JS lib to create a resource type. 

See - Adobe Experience Manager Help | Creating a custom Experience Manager sling:resourceType for Touch UI

In AEM communities, CKEditor is used as default editor. All we want is, we want to use CKEditor as a default editor in all places in AEM.

There is no docs on this or examples. This use case -- I believe -- would not be supported by support either (we are confirming with AEM Support to make 100% sure).
