Can you mine X11 with Asic/Scrypt Miner?

No! None of those work at all. The only thing you get from mining with those is a ban from the pool.

scrypt and sha256 are not part of the X11 combinations of hash algo's but if an ASIC machine was created to mine a sha3 coin such as maxcoin, this is keccak based and so perhaps this part of the x11 hash algo could be incorporated into an ASIC machine. Perhaps groestl is the place to start as it also has a coin, and I heard (correctly?) this part of the hashing is particularly slow so who wants to design a FPGA and write a miner program that farms out some of its hashing to external hardware, should only take an afternoon or 2 ;)
