Yes, this is a supported platform ("Microsoft Windows x86/x64"). See:

Be careful when you are deploying the native DLL components (See: - e.g. dbicu12.dll, dbicudt12.dll, dbcon12.dll, and dblgen12.dll ) that you match the SQL Anywhere directory (\bin32 or \bin64) to the version of ASP.NET you are running.

If you have compiled the ASP.NET application for "Any CPU", this will pick the architecture (x86/x64) of the operating system you are currently running at runtime, and you should deploy the components accordingly.

I'm really no expert on this, but does the Server Core installation support the .NET framework at all?

It seems to be available for server core installations of "Windows Server 2008 R2" and above, but not for "Windows Server 2008".

That's correct. See the IIS blog article here that describes support for ASP.NET on IIS on Server Core:
