Sorry, I don't understand the question.

Not out of the box, but this could be added.

I assume with "embed" you mean calling functions in the Idle runtime
DLL? You can use whatever language/toolchain you want as long as it can
load a DLL and call its functions.

The interpreter is in itself a small C program that simply loads and
uses the Idle runtime DLL which contains all the "meat".
