    A Visual Studio solution can have multiple projects.  It is not possible to combine a Xamarin project with an ASP.NET project.  In Visual Studio you would see two projects in one solution.  The Xamarin project is deployed to a mobile application while the ASP.NET project is deployed to a web server.

    Visual Studio has solution configuration which controls project start up during development.  Right click the solution and select properties.  The solution properties has options for configuring multiple start up projects.

    File -> Add Project -> Existing project or New Project.  For an existing project, navigate to the project's project file.

    You can only add projects projs to a .NET solution sln using Visual Studio. You can have multiple solutions slns with each solution sln having multiple projects projs   with all slns with their projs making up the complete .NET solution.
