It depends upon requisite elements if they are satisfied.
1. Protocol used is TCP/IP
2. Connection to a WAN router
3. Device is capable of TCP/IP datagram
(this is not English speak, google up to learn about these jargon of net abracadabra)

Not impossible technically.

By conventional application today, they are different.

LAN is a collection of computers exchanging data through a common hub/switch; these communicate each other in a single language or protocol: ethernet. Usually the common link layer specification was/is IEEE 802.3 in its frames. LANs are commonly wired, although today computers can be wirelessly connected.

PAN is a little LAN, but this one is usually a collection of personal appliances like celphones, PDA, etc. (net abaracadabra again; google it up to learn)

Welcome. I just want to answer although the question is quite difficult to expound.

Hope that helps.
