is there a way to use these libs in Metro apps?
I need to port an win32 Desktop app to a Metro app. It would be much easier when porting to be able to use these libs and switch later to Windows Runtime sockets.

I would suggest you to use Windows.Networking namespace instead of Windows API in Metro App project.
You can follow these sample codes:

The APIs you can use or any libraries you leverage need to use the APIs listed in the API reference for Metro style apps. The list Alternatives to Windows APIs in Metro style apps may be useful to you as well.
Regarding the boost library, I find I'm referencing this talk a lot today. There is some discussion and a demo about using such libraries.
