A qualified yes; Of course it is possible, but it's not simply a
question of saying 'Hey django-admin, these fields are related, so do
AJAX goodness', you would need to write it mostly yourself, including
a custom form that adds the additional fields (I assume that you would
only record the low level item, eg 'Community'), adding web service
calls so you can populate those fields, etc etc.
