On the hybrid thing, there's a draenei-orc hybrid in Nagrand, Lantresor of the Blade.

But arent they like sworn enemies?

That doesn't mean they can't breed, it just reduces the chance said breeding was consentual.

Well as far as I know Orcs and Draenei lived quite peacefully before the first war, which took place, what, 20 years before WoW? There's no reason why they couldn't have interbred before then, and the result becoming an adult (or in Lantresor's place, what seems to be an old man).

They weren't always at each other's throats, though. There was a long period in there where they were trading, and probably even friendly. Then the Legion came to corrupt the orcs and Draenor went to pot, ending up with atrocities like the Road of Glory and the shattering of the planet.Since most draenei NPCs seem to remember the peace with they had with the orcs, and several orcs remember the time before the corruption, I'd say it's safe to say that a hybrid baby would easily be able to live through the corrupted Horde, though it'd take one tough bastard to survive it with that heritage. Lantresor seems to fit the bill perfectly.

In the lore, there are high elf + human hybrids, called half elves, there are ogre + orc hybrids called half-ogres (or mok'nathal), and there are orc + draenei hybrids and orc + human hybrids, both called half orcs.They typically aren't accepted into their dominant races. Half elves tend to join the Alliance, half ogres almost exclusively keep to themselves but are loosely allied with the Horde, and half orcs are moderately well recieved amongst the Horde, albeit still misfits.Further back in history, the cross-breeding of various demigods and other deity-level beings gace birth to a number of other races.

lore for Garona was ret-conned to make her an orc/draenei hybrid (formerly she was considered orc/human) this of course makes sense in that there are no known (non time travelling) orcs that came through the portal before medivh opened it, which was only a short time before the events of warcraft 1, (in which garona is already at adulthood)also, the ogre lords may be either a step down from the gronn (evolution wise) or are a cross between gronn and ogre (makes you wonder how many of these were "consensual".....i think i just gave myself nightmares for a month :p)
