Whether the software is commercial or not makes no difference to the
licensing.  Even if it were GNU GPL, you could use DrScheme in that way
with a GNU GPL'd commercial application.

If you meant to ask whether you could use DrScheme in this
way with a proprietary application, then the general answer is yes,
but you should check the FAQs about the LGPL on the www.gnu.org web site.
