    Yes it is psisoble, just add the WCF service (*.svc + service dll) to the ASP.NET project. IIS will be able to serve request for both. Make sure you put the required configuration into your web.config.It is not the only solution but it should be easy to implement.

    In my opinion, ORMs are specialized and purposed to solve typical problems. If you want some more generic solution (e.g. for much more complex queries) or just different functionality you can either modify existing solution (what for various reasons often isn’t the best choice) or create your own.ORMs also limit you by forcing you to use their conventions and accept their limitations.
