Sure you CAN, but you shouldn't, for very good reasons:
- Port 80 is designated for HTTP kommunikation, port 443 for TLS/SSL. Skype is not a HTTP Daemon, so it shouldn't use these ports
- Skype can run very well without these ports
- If you change the ports for Apache, you have to add this port on the end of your domainnames (e.g. http://localhost:8080)
- if you change the ports for Apache, it can break functionality of webapplications which are not designed for different ports
if you still want to change the Apache ports, you find plenty of descriptions with the help of the board search how to do so (all of them with better reasons then Skype i think).

I think you will find it very fast in the Skype configuration. If not, there is again more then one thread at this board facing this tiny topic.
