Possible?  Yes...

WAS is an application server.  I'll run any application you build designed to run it in.  WAS is not an authoring or development tool - it is an application server framework for running J2EE applications.

WebSphere Portal Server is a web portal development and deployment framework that depends on and runs in WAS (Portal Server actually includes WAS as a component.)

WAS and WPS aren't similar products, so the idea of a "gap analysis" doesn't really apply.

It is like trying to compare Microsoft Windows 7 operating system to Microsoft Excel.  

I'd suggest you do some reading on WPS to determine if it is a fit for whatever project you have in mind.  If it is, and you need even a fraction of the functionality it provides, you're probably better off using it than building all of that yourself.

Here is a quick introduction to WAS and WPS:

Happy to help.  WebSphere product line is big and confusing.  Sometimes it is hard to figure out where a specific product fits.
