Shell or Solid?

I would like to know if it is possible to mesh particular parts in an assembly using a shell mesh. I would also like to mesh other parts with a solid mesh. Is this necessary ? I am trying to model a thin film diaphragm on a bulk substrate. The thin film has different material properties then the substrate and doesn't like to mesh as a solid.
