Most genset makers offer a sound shield, which suggests it is ok to have one,which you could replicate DIY. Depending what the original costs.
Boxing in the main engine sounds more problematic, but think of older boats where the engine protruded into the saloon and a box over it became a table. Recently we were in Scotland aboard a converted trawler with a boxed over engine in the cockpit. Even so, heat dissipation must be an issue, and if you vent the box you`ve got noise.
