I have not purchased the bulbs for these yet, and I am aware that
if I want to dim a ceiling recessed light, I have to purchase a LED bulb
which says that it is dimmable, but do you have to factor in whether
the "housing" is dimmable or not as well?

I am only interested in this model below (Halo HT7).
Are these potentially able to dim light bulbs when the bulbs I purchase specify that they are dimmable?

The model of can makes no difference in dimming.
There is an exception to that statement.

There are a number of cans that have ballasts for fluorescent lights, made with 2 or 4 straight pin sockets. With those cans and the externally ballasted CFLs, there can be a differance in whether it is dimmable or not.
