Given the power of the CPU, I have two questions related to MPIDE.
1 Is it possible to do in line assembler instructions with the MPIDE tool? (An example snippit with correct syntax would be great)

yes, it's just GCC, so the standard GCC syntax works fine: [url]http://www.ibiblio.org/gferg/ldp/GCC-Inline-Assembly-HOWTO.html[/url]
All things are possible, some more easily than others ;) Getting the shadow registers may mean some tweaks to the bootloader to enable them in the config registers. I personally haven't had a go at them yet, but it should be possible, yes.

I was under the impression that allocating an interrupt Priority 7 automatically used the shadow registers, I may be mistaken but, I don't recall them having to be enabled in Config.
That said, I have only ever used them on custom hardware coded via the ICD3, never with chipKIT or any other bootloader.

The bits FSRSSEL<2:0> of DEVCFG3 define which interrupt levels ("X and above")are assigned to shadow sets. I don't know how that is set up in the standard bootloader, so you may need to change it to suit your own uses.
