SP 2013 - Document Library with Cascading Dropdown

SP 2013 - Document Library with Cascading Dropdown

We are in the process of migrating to SP 2013 and I have to create a document library with cascading drop downs.

I have accomplished this in SP 2010 with lists, but I have only been able to locate snippets of ways to use third party implements to accomplish in a document library.
I cannot use any third party sources, jquery, spservices, etc. to create. Is this possible since the form is SharePoint based, not InfoPath?

Is it possible to create an InfoPath form and connect it to the SharePoint Library and replace the SharePoint Form?
When the user adds a new file or edits an existing one they have to use the ribbon to activate, not an external or different method.
