Answer

No. Broadcom BES-53248 switches do not support separate bonding modes on different switch ports.

Additional Information

From the admin guide:

Non-redundant ports: Ports on either of the peer switches that are not part of the VPC (ports P4 and S4). VPC interfaces and non-redundant ports cannot be members of the same VLAN, i.e. a VLAN may contain VPC interfaces or a VLAN may contain non-redundant ports, but not both.
 
FDB entries learned on VPC interfaces are synced between the two devices. In the case where all VPC member ports are UP, data traffic does not traverse the peer link.
