I use firebird but postgre have much more datatypes so i thinking to change to postgre.

I need to know if post gre suports Composite Types and if it have a embeeded server like firebird.

Postgres has, among the other, composite types.
I'm working with both and, must say, PG have much more features. Take a look into excelent pg documentation.
Pg doesn't have embedded server and never will. Full instalation is quite small for todays machines so it is not handycap.
If you really need something light and compatible with postgresql protocol, try H2 database.

Unfortunately no. Child columns are not supported.
