What sort of "combination" are you interested in? As to Seaside, a common approach is to develop in Squeak or Pharo and then port to GemStone. GemStone has a mailing list with an archive (http://n4.nabble.com/GLASS-f1460844.html) that might be useful. You can join the discussion (follow the links at http://seaside.gemstone.com/support.html).

As to using Squeak for the application and GemStone as the database, this is not common since there are no generally supported libraries for object replication. Of course it can be (and has been) done. You can use the libraries in GemTools as an example of communicating to/from GemStone from Squeak.
