In a Sci-fi universe would a weapon that uses plasma and hadron particles at the same time be possible

hadrons are particles which feel the strong force like protons and neutrons, and plasma is ionised gas i believe so they are atoms which lost electrons (or gained). Atoms are made up of hadrons such as protons.

Basically, there is a classification system for particles. Fermions are particles which obey the Pauli exclusion principle in that they cannot exist in the same quantum state. This includes Hadrons and Leptons.
Leptons have no substructure. Electrons, tauons and muons are all leptons. Leptons do not feel the nuclear strong force.
Hadrons DO feel the strong force. There are 2 types of hadrons. Baryons and Mesons. Baryons have a baryon number of 1 (meaning they are composed of 3 quarks). Protons and neutrons are baryons.
Mesons have a B number of 0 because they are made up of 1 quark and 1 antiquark.

Plasma is ionised gas. ions are atoms which have lost or gained electrons. So they will be composed of hadrons and leptons because ions are made up of protons, neutrons and electrons.
So there isn't really any distinction in using plasma with/without hadrons due to the reasons above.

What field of science do/have you studied?

I've studied Chemistry, Biology and Physics (GCSE level for those Brits out there) though my Biology understanding is the most advanced as I am currently studying it at A-level (again, Brits will understand).

Also Psychology if it counts.

Well, you could say that Biology is my "speciality", but I'm also trying to learn Calculus and Physics, and I'm thinking of getting into Chemistry too :)

Calculus? Good luck my friend, may his noodly appendage bless your bolognese.

LOL, I hope he watches over your bolognese too, my friend.
