No, really... If I get you right, you want your Embperl system to
generate pages which will be parsed later by the PHP interpreter - Or
the other way around. It is not impossible - While writing this
paragraph, I played with some toy idea suggestions on how to do
this. But please, don't. Perl and PHP are both very capable
languages. But Embperl's scope of action is tremendously close to
PHP's. And although theoretically possible, there is very little to
gain from such a setup.

Of course, both PHP and Embperl are able to generate Javascript (which
is, all in all, not a language executed on the server, as both are,
but on the client - Generated Javascript is just a data stream, just
like HTML is).

If your question was only "can my PHP-serving Apache also serve
Embperl documents?", the answer would be a simple "yes". But when you
added "in the same file", I got all sweaty.
