Could you tell me if I can say "proudly own that hat" equals to "become the proud owner of that hat"

No, they are not the same. "I proudly own that hat." - I own the hat right now. "I become the proud owner of that hat." - Incomplete thought; needs more information: "I become the proud owner of that hat as soon as I finish school."
