Main Question or Discussion Point

I read in some article that we have material from pigs too. 1) Is that possible? Can pigs and monkeys breed? 2) Is there any possibility "someone" in a far away past crossbreed-ed genetic material of both apes and pigs? Are we a hybrid?

No. This just implies that: humans, pigs and monkeys have a common ancestor. There is nothing particularly special about this fact; all life on earth has a common ancestor.
