AP must be connected to POE switch. That is mandatory (if you want switch to provide power to AP).
You can connect POE and non POE switches without any problems.

If I understood you well - you want to connect AP to non POE switch and then connect non poe switch to poe switch. If my understanding is correct than  - No. It will not work.
However you can buy POE injector and that way provide power for AP. Typically minus side is that you can't remotely power cycle AP if you do not use POE switch.
