Do they exist in the fluff?
Not that I've heard of - unless the BL novels count as fluff.....?
eldar society and reproduction is normally so strict and disciplined that there is little room for a genestealer cult to take root. That and the psychic sygnature that the brood telepathy of a genestealer hive mind would make would rapidly be noticed by the hyper sensative psychics of the eldar. So I will so no. Now is that to say that a genestealer/eldar hybrid is impossible? No. Just that an eldar genestealer cult on a craftworld would be next to impossible... but in Commoragh....

New BL novel, "The Commoraghian Dream!" (sp?). "This is the love story of a young malicious dark eldar girl, who falls in, and out of love, with a secret cult leader."
New Crons 1000 points painted 6/2/10

Wouldn't surprise me if the Dark Eldar experimented with Genestealers and other Tyranids, particularly the Homonculi.
Even if it means using Dark Eldar subjects; and where else are you more likely to find willing subjects?

I think the geenestealers are capable of reproducing almost with anything.And given that human and eldar genetics are quite suspiciously similar,i d say yes.
However not on a craftworld for the reasons stated above.
However a maiden world perhaps?
Praise be to the Emperor!!
I'm pretty sure it would never happen to a Craftworld Eldar but this is a great conversion...
