Binding FreeRadius to the DHCP Server

As a matter of fact, for the first login, the users will have an IP from a
certain pool X, once the informations are entered, and after redialing, the
users will get the new IP from the second pool Y.
All I want to know is if it's possible to bind the radius to a DHCP server,
if yes how it can be done? Otherwise, is there any other pssible method to
configure 2 pools of Ips X and Y and relay it to the DHCP?

Sounds like a captive portal to me.

Write a script. The server doesn't normally interact with DHCP.

What you're saying is a very convoluted way of:
a) some users get IP's from pool X
b) other users get IP's from pool Y
