Sure - I'm not an expert on either since I have access to IBM
supercomputers, but in principle they do not interact at all. Even if you
have daemons running they are almost certainly on different ports.
There is an experimental version of LAM that supports interoperable MPI, but
since MPICH doesn't do it you can't mix the two yet. When this works,
though, you should be able to run e.g. a job with 10 cpus, where 4 use
MPICH MPI and 6 LAM MPI.
