Running DD-WRT on the WRT54GL, is it possible to connect an external directional antenna to one of the antenna connectors and have 1) a point-to-point Wi-Fi link with another WRT54GL (which has WAN connection) using SSID A and 2) a omnidirectional short range access point on SSID B using the stock antenna? Or will it just use the antennas arbitrarily.

I believe it uses both antennas for everything, but you can create two concurrent SSIDs.This still sounds feasible, but you'll need a DD-WRT expert.
