Is it possible for a non-IITian to become a professor at IIT?

[A2A] If by IITian, you mean IIT B.Tech., yes, it is possible. In fact, most of the professors in IIT Roorkee don't have their B.Tech.'s from IIT's. But, if your Ph.D. is from a college ranked lower than IITs, then it is very difficult.
