Currently I have the ASSP as Spam and Exchange 2003 Server.

It is possible to make the IMF Exchange 2003, read the message that came with a signing of the ASSP and sends it directly to the junk mail?

IMO, IMF shouldn't be reading the setting of other spam filter.

IMF uses its own algorithm and identifies the spam level and act accordingly

Can we have both IMF and 3rd party spam filter?
yes, you can
In this case, the mails will go under 2 sepearte (parallel) scanners and not a sequential scanner

Refer: (in the comments by Konstantin Ryvkin -- for the topic of brightmail vs IMF)
IMF is a *protocol* event sink. As pictured above it hooks up to the _End_of_Data command. (CRLF.CRLF). After the messages passes the above stages they are submitted to the Exchange's advance queuing system.
Brightmail is a *transport* event sink, which is inside advance queuing.
So if installed on the same server IMF (along with the above filtering methods) will be engaged prior to Brightmail for messages comming through SMTP.

Do you need to use the service\configuration of the 3rd party spam-filter
Then, instead of configuring both these products to work sequentially, you can disable the IMF...in this case just the 3rd party spam-filter will be only one in action
