Is it possible to have a hierarchy that contains attributes from two different dimensions?

Yes, if you have a link between those two.
In other words, one dimension should have a foreign key to the other dimension.

The question was answered. What other thoughts do you need and what do you need them about specifically?

I guess what I'm saying is ... did the answer confuse the issue?

I don't know if the original poster was asking about multi-dimension or tabular, but in tabular, all your hierarchy fields have to exist in the same dimension. A way to get around this, though, is to create a new calculated member in your dim table and use the =RELATED function. For instance, I wanted to create a Product Hierarchy (Category-Subcategory-Product). On the dimProduct tab, you'd create a new column for ProductCategory and use the function =RELATED(DimProductCategory[EnglishProductCategoryName]). You'd do the same thing for ProductSubcategory. =RELATED(DimProductSubcategory[EnglishProductSubcategoryName]). Now you can use them in your hierarchy.
