Is there a possibility to set-up transactional or merge replication using ODBC channel only?

We need to replicate one of the old databases we can't really create publication on. However, we do have ODBC driver for it which works well when creating linked tables in Access.

If SQL Server can't do it - is there any 3rd party replication agent that works with ODBC connections?

I would recommend looking at any of the class of Extract/Transform/Load (ETL) applications.  One good place to start is Pervasive Software's Data Integrator product, which has built-in connectors for over a hundred data sources and targets.

Use linked servers (you may select several provider there)...

Hope this helps...
