I'm not sure how to do this joining, but others will know if it is
possible or not.

You can leave your data in DGN format if you want. MapServer can
(usually) read that format. But you will get better performance if you
convert them from DGN levels into files like you said. Probably shapefile
format would be best. However, you may want to consider using PostGIS
database, then you can store your tabular and spatial data in the same
Hope that helps,
