Is there any rule about the use of "when" and "while" ?
When/While we were talking, Mark ordered the drinks.
When/While I was walking home, I met a friend.
I think that
1) only "while" is possible.
2) both are possible

I think you are correct (1 = only while, 2 = both).
If somebody gives a proper English rule about it, then we can both learn :) If not, just assume you are already correct. It seems correct to me.
