Is it possible to do HFT in Kite API?

No, Kite API is basically a HTTP API.
It is not possible to do High Frequency Trading using HTTP API due to the protocol limitations.
HTTP is a stateless protocol, which means that the connection between the client and the server is lost once the transaction ends and has to create new session for next request. Moreover Kite API imposes rate limits for all requests. The current limit is 5 req/sec, means you can’t place more than five order in a second.
