If you mean you want to estimate simultaneously a system of equations 
in which you have an explicit equation for your continuous endogenous 
variable and an equation for your dichotomous endogenous variable, 
then the answer is (probably) no.  I don't think anyone has written 
such a package for Stata.

However, you may still be able to estimate such a system equation-by-
equation and get consistent, albeit inefficient, estimates.  You may 
be able to use -ivprob- to estimate your dichotomous endogenous 
variable equation, and -ivreg- (or -ivreg2-) to estimate your 
continuous endogenous variable equation.  As usual, an advantage of 
equation-by-equation estimation is that misspecification in one 
equation wouldn't contaminate the estimation of the other equation.

Hope this helps.
