.  Sure. They are quite common in industry. You might have a hard time finding/building one that will run off of house mains.
.  The fact that you have to ask indicates to me that you do not have the resources to build a 100HP motor that will operate safely. Try starting with a fractional HP motor and work your way up.

ummmm, these kind of questions are putting an incredible amount of doubt.

To make a motor you need electromagnets to attract/repulse permanent magnets (or other electromagnets, but that's like never ever ever done)

Induction AC motors don't use permanent magnets

. I'd go with a three-phase induction motor for that much HP.
