I would like to configure my SQL Servers to use non-standard TCP ports for incoming connections. Is there a way in my machine.config files used for ASP .NET development that I can specify a port the application should use in the connection string when connecting to my database server?

You could specify it as part of the connection string. Did I get your question right?
example:

"Provider=SQLOLEDB;" & "Data Source=<x.x.x.x>,<port number>;" & "Initial Catalog=<dbname>;" & "Network=DBMSSOCN;" & _     "User Id=<uid>;" & "Password=<pwd>"

So, the following should work? (I've used a connection string from my machine.config and changed some values)
<add name="ConnectionStringName" connectionString="Data Source=DBSERVER\MYINSTANCE,26500; Initial Catalog=DBNAME; Network Library=DBMSSOCN; User ID=SOMEUSERNAME; Password=XXXXXX"/>

Yes, assuming your SQL Server listens on port 26500.
