It's possible as Windows doesn't really give much about the brand. As long as they both support TCP/IP4(6) and are installed correctly you can team 'm up.
Practically however I would try to use the same brand of network cards as it this would be more beneficial if you are using management software for the cards.

You are talking about multi-vendor teaming. I believe both Intel and Broadcom support MVT. But I have never done this personally.

I think you can use either one, but you cannot set up them in native mode, has to be mvt mode (don't ask me how as I have never done this before :-) )
