I'm an absolute beginner when it comes to Orchard and CMS in general. I made a simple ASP.NET web forms site, with custom controls (mostly they present and let the user interact with data from database). Is it possible to migrate my website to Orchard and let me keep my custom controls? How would I do that?

I would be quite hard without rewriting it. Your site is using WebForms, whereas Orchard is using ASP.NET MVC, which is an almost completely different technology. It's almost as if you wanted to move from PHP to Orchard. Well, not quite as there may be some C# code that you may be able to slavage, but I would definitely see this as a rewrite.
