B Can different types of particles be entangled with one another ?

    For example, can an electron and a photon become entangled?

    An electron and a photon can become entangled -- http://www.nature.com/news/quantum-spookiness-passes-toughest-test-yet-1.18255 (demonstrated in that experiment).

    I've read many times that everything in the universe is entangled with everything else, although I suspect you won't have CHSH inequality violation with most of that entanglement.

    Of course.

    In fact an electron an photon being entangled is responsible for spontaneous emission.

    Thanks
