Is it posible to run into one .msi project an .exe file or .msi files that were included in a Visual Studio Installer Project??

P.E. I want to run the mdac_typ_27.exe file that I have included into the .msi project.

You would have to create a custom action of type "run an executable". This is possible in MSI, but I don't think the VSI user interface enables you to create such actions. You would have to post process your MSI with Orca, or use a more powerful setup authoring tool.
