No you can't.  This would greatly confuse Windows since it automatically detects the mouse.  Mice are relatively cheap.  You should get one mouse with all of the features that you like.

Surely you can. I have an expirience connecting 2 serial mice. Windows will work with both of them, but I don't think that it will give you any advantage. In my case it was a reason, i played Settlers2 game with my friend in split screen mode. That required 2 serial mice.

Never tried it.  Never had a need for it.  You must be really special.
