Technically speaking, on different interfaces, yes, but on the
same interface or the "any" interface, no.

Unless you have an extra interface, this is not a practical
optional.  And even then, well, it's simply goofy.

Generally speaking, I think it not a good alternative.  If, as
you say, your client can only talk ldap:// with StartTLS on
port 636  (and no support whatsoever for ldaps://), I would suggest
you ask the developer of that client to support ldap:// with
Start TLS on 389.   However, I would be surprised if a developer
actually limited their client in such a way.  I would guess you
might be wrong in what you say.  I suggest you contact those familiar
with the particular client (using an appropriate list or other
means) for clarification.
