Not legal. Clearly stated in the basic rulebook:
Choose a Faction: Players agree on which
factions to control. One player controls Rebels
while the other controls Imperials. If players
cannot agree, randomly assign factions.
All components belonging to a player’s own
faction are considered friendly, and all
components belonging to his opponent’s faction
are considered enemy.
And from the Tournament Rules PDF:
Each player must build one squad for use in an X-Wing tournament. The squad-building rules described
in this section supersede the squad-building rules described in the X-Wing rulebook.
The maximum squad points for each player is 100 points. A squad cannot exceed 100 points, though it
may contain fewer than 100 points.
Each player may choose to field either a Rebel or Imperial squad, as tournament seeding ignores the
Nowhere are players given permission to mix ships from different factions into the same squad. For a wacky, different game at home, sure. For any kind of organized play, totally not allowed.
Imperials: 8 TIEs, 4 TIE Adv, 12 TIE Interceptors, 3 Firesprays, 6 TIE Bombers, 5 Lambdas, 3 TIE Defenders, 4 Phantoms

There were a couple of Star Wars comics where Han Solo faced a pirate captain who had stolen a Star Destroyer.
His team used every kind of fighter and created some crossbreed ships when there weren' enough repair parts.
A scenario like that might be fun.

I would love to have the brother-in-law's flying together as a flight pair
Wedge in his X-Wing and Soontir in his Tie Interceptor.

A bit off topic but,
the 'Crossbreed' title reminded me of the "Uglies" from the old X-Wing book series. That was the name that Rogue Squadron (or was it the Wraiths?) gave to the cobbled together ships of pirates and bandits; TIE cockpits with Y-Wing engines and such. Would be neat to see and play with something like that.

Theres nothing to stop you using mixed squads if your gaming group allows it.
(Tournaments and rules-wise, as others said is a no-no)
Fluff-wise, theres plenty mentions of rebel pilots using TIES (usually Imperial pilots who have just went AWOL and took their fighters with them.)
(Though how they manage that without a Hyperdrive is anyones guess! lol)
