Of course it can. Use the mode() in the same way you used the mean() function.
You didn't provide a reproducible example, so I can't provided tested
code, but I would think that you can add
mode=mode(COUNTS) to the ddply() arguments.
all1 <- ddply(all,"ACT_NAME", summarise, mean=mean(COUNTS), sd=sd(COUNTS),
>>> q25=quantile(COUNTS,.25),median=quantile(COUNTS,.50),
>>> q75=quantile(COUNTS,.75),
>>> q90=quantile(COUNTS,.90), q95=quantile(COUNTS,.95),
>>> q99=quantile(COUNTS,.99) )
