Can you have a social security number and an alien number?

An alien number is issued by the USCIS. A Social Security number is issued by the Social Security Administration. If you are permanent resident in the United States, also referred to as a green card holder, then you must have both an alien number and a Social Security number. You typically can apply for a Social Security card after your application for permanent residence is approved by the USCIS (or the US Embassy if you are overseas).
