Every sound can be reproduced by any audio program by the means of samples. It's just a matter of complexity. While it might be difficult to create a rich stereo landscape with a 4-channel tracker and be easy on a multi-track sequencer, on the other hand it might be rather complex to create a chiptune-style arpeggio in a modern sequencer, while it is really simple to do this with an oldskool tracker.

what more oldschool trackers can do that is hard to do in modern commercial trackers ?

The only fully commercial tracker I am aware of that is still being developed is Renoise. Renoise has dropped or improved many classic tracker commands, but in essence it still does the same kind of stuff. Apart from Renoise, all currently developed trackers that I know are freeware and still support the very same effect commands as the original trackers on the Amiga (such as ProTracker).

Those are called sequencers. The most basic feature to distinguish between a tracker and sequencer is usually to check whether it uses a piano roll (sequencer) or pattern editor (tracker) as its main tool to input notes.
