>> Can I replication between 2008 64bit and 2008 32bit express to keep a copy of database?

No Issues. You can do replication between 2008 versions without considering bit versions

Can I running the 32bits asp.net program with 64bits Sql server?

Yes..ASP Application will connect to SQL Server irrespective of its bit versions.
Bit versions are applicable for SQL Server Installations only. Once it is Installed, then everything becomes a SQL Server 2008 database only.

Hope this helps.
