Officially it's not possible but, using Boot Camp you can boot the MacBook into Windows and run it that way. Alternatively you can install Parallels or Fusion and then install a Windows virtual machine and then install Visual Studio and run it that way.

And for sure there are some similar software that may achieve the same functionalities , that you may use such as:

MonoDevelop, native C# development on Mac OS X

QT Creator from Nokia/Trolltech (C++)

XCode

What i told u earlier, is correct for both desktop and web applications, but
using Mono
http://monodevelop.com/
You can run MANY FEATURES OF asp.net, NOT ALL FUNCTIONALITIES.
or consider using the VM

I don't believe it natively runs on MAC, but as stated before, you can get any windows based software to run on MAC via a virtual machine.  You can however connect to a SQL server database usin JDBC, I just don't believe you can install it.

I totally agree with Ramone_Hamilton, you have to make other server for the database or use the VM.
