Aspose.Words combined with SP Online and portals

For a customer I am trying to meet a requirement stating that users should be able to merge all selected documents into 1 document.


According to the technical documentation this should be possible but will it be possible to merge these document types into 1 PDF?
-Word
-XLS
-.TXT
-PDF
-JPG (or any other picture format)
-XML

And what if we are dealing with external users that access the SP document library through a portal. Could we develop the same kind of functionality they can trigger from their portal UI?
