If the Milky Way's halo is displaced supersolid dark matter, and the state of displacement of the supersolid dark matter is referred to geometrically as curved space-time, then is the Milky Way's halo the physical manifestation of curved space-time?

No, except in the unhelpful sense that all matter floating in space is affected by gravity and therefore its position and motion could be called "a physical manifestation of curved space-time".
