Chord surimposition and scales

Hi,

Is it possible to define completly out of relation chords in harmony layers ?

is it possible to define scales completely arbitrarily in the chord layers or should these necessarily be modes of the main scale ?

Completely out of relation doesn't work. You can use large dissonant chords for the main progression. Then you can slice off a lot of sub-chords for the layers. The idea behind this is that overlayed chords should still make sense as one big (dissonant) chord or scale, so you don't end up with random chromatic clashes.
