Thank you for contacting WPML support.

Yes, it's possible for pages/posts to have the same slug across languages.

For the custom page/post to have the same slug, go to WPML=>Settings => Translated documents options=> and select 2nd or 3rd option as per your need : hidden link

After this option is saved now you can go to your secondary language post/page and within edit by the permalink you can click edit and edit the slug: hidden link (check method 2 here)

Let me know if this helps.
