Yes, you can combine inductors in series or parallel to arrive at a precise value; the same applies to caps. Don't sweat trying to get closer then 5% of recommended values.

Two like inductors in series doubles the value, two like capacitors in series halves the value.

Just note that it will usually be practically impossible to place somewhere where the two don't affect eachother, yes, I know it's possible in theory, but alas, not in the real world.

Also it generally sounds horrible .. so don't. Just have a larger value than you need and wind of wire from it until you hit the exact value. Simple and effective.
Hmm .. no .. I really haven't got anythig cool to say ..

Yes you can. The sound quality will be worse, mostly because you have more resistance. Interference due to coil orientation is in theory but practically I haven't recognized any difference. If you keep the same DCR (and winding quality), I doubt you can detect the difference. Usually in the crossover you make more serious mistake than just allowing the interference to happen
