Perfectly possible, assuming that one computer is wireless and the other is wired. Most routers work like this out of the box.

If you mean on the same computer, then in theory it should work as well with no problems though of course Windows will only use one connection and seems to favour a LAN connection where available.

It is possible to have as many connections as you like on Windows, though it'll only use one of them by default.

You may be able to tell certain programs to use a certain connection to do something but this isn't always possible.
