I've never actually tried this, but it ought to be possible, yes.
The main issue would be getting the agent to initialise both the AgentX
subagent code, and the main SNMP listening code.

The Net-SNMP agent is currently coded to act as *either* an AgentX subagent,
*or* an SNMP (master) agent - not both.
What you're talking about is essentially acting as both an AgentX subagent
and an SNMP master agent (but without the AgentX master bits). You'll almost
certainly have to fiddle with the initialisation handling to activate both
But in principle, there's nothing to prevent this working.
