Is it possible to design a descent trajectory.I have designed a capture orbit 150X150 then a orbit of 15X150.
But is it possible to design a descent trajectory from an altitude of 15km?

It's certainly possible to design a descent trajectory in GMAT, but we don't have any special support for that kind of thing. You would just be designing an orbital trajectory that ends at a lunar altitude of 0km.
