In theory, yes, you can include code from a PL\SQL function directly into a query that calls a function *IF* the function can be reduced to simple SQL.  In this case however, the function includes a cursor loop and some conditional logic based on values in the last record retrieved by the cursor, so no, you certainly can't easily include this logic in a single-level query.

It may be possible to write a "max" subquery that returns just one row instead of a cursor loop, and put that inside of a "case" statement to evaluate what it returns, then put this into your query, but this is certainly not a task for a novice SQL coder!  I'm not suggesting that you are a SQL novice, but this would be a challenge for many advanced SQL developers.  Also, maintenance and/or changes of something this complex could be a problem in the future.

In the use of this function  within this query however you can  cut some wood i think, because so many conditions are handled in the query itself..
However this will mean that the determination of lv_st is coded in 2 places : in the function and in this sql.

Looking more closely at the function there rise questions : as far as I can see I expect the result always to be lv_st = 2.
The count of rows of the group by query in the function never gets 0 (that row won't be found *1) and the notfound exits the loop without altering lv_show_ordr : so lv_show_ordr will always be FALSE and thus lv_st = 2 ?

 *1) Within an outer join is possible to count a column of the optional table (if there are only null values the count will get 0)
