You can do it in VSCode using these commands in settings.json

   "": "C:\\Users\\Username\\Cmder\\Cmder.exe",
   "terminal.external.windowsExec": "C:\\Users\\Username\Cmder\\Cmder.exe",
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

replace the path to cmder with yours ,
even if you set it , it wont run as inbuilt terminal in VSCode , it is only possible to launch it externally.

It is actually possible with those lines in settings.json in VScode:

    "terminal.external.windowsExec": "C:\\Cmder\\Cmder.exe",
    "":   "C:\\Cygwin64\\bin\\bash.exe",
    "": ["-lic", "cd $OLDPWD; exec zsh"]
