Hi Vito

in general, it's possible to add Google data in Mapbender. You would 
have to write a small OpenLayers wrapper module that adds your service 
to the OpenLayers module in Mapbender. But you would not be able to 
administer these services with the existing administration tools.

However, OpenLayers support in Mapbender will not be included until 
version 2.6 which will be released in mid-September.

If you are a developer and need more instructions on how to code this 
enhancement, let me know.
