Yes, it's possible to have both a ward and a stake calling at the same time, and a high priest can serve as a counselor to a Sunday School president who's an elder.

I can't find anything that says it's not allowed. The Handbook indicated that "where possible" a member should only hold one calling (Handbook 2: 19.1.1), While having multiple callings is not that usual, I find holding two callings of such high level to be uncommon - except in transition.
