in separate assembly projects yes - just like you'd mix C# and VB.

there's no separate framework for Delphi Prism - it "just" uses  
the .NET framework and all .NET components and libraries out there.  
But of course it does have full intellisense for all classes  
(framework or otherwise).

Intellisense works based on metadata (and XmlDocs) of the used  
assemblies, as well as the IDEs knowledge of the code inside your own  
project. So yes, Intellisense will work on any and all classes  
available to your code.

it's not perfect, no. ideally, i'd like to have Prism in Xcode, which  
i love (and actually prefer over VS).
