Is there any way or example how to configure plonePAS to consume

This won't be a configuration issue, it will be a coding issue. You
don't mention specifically what "consume a web service" means, but
you might be able to put together a Scriptable Multiplugin or write
your own filesystem-based plugin to do the job.
However, there is one big caveat. Making HTTP calls (or almost any
other network request) out of Zope code during the execution of a
web request is risky. The executing thread will wait until the
external request has been answered, and if for whatever reason no
answer is received it will hang forever. There are four threads
available in a normal Zope configuration, the fourth time this
happens your website will be unavailable and Zope must be
restarted. A lot of care needs to be taken to ensure there are
sensible timeouts on these external calls to prevent hangs.
You can get around it, though, if you use something like Zasync. A
bit heavy-handed, but it's there for ya. :^)
