Is it possible (or acceptable) to setup a database to replicate data via transactional replication and merge replication at the same time (to, to different databases on separate servers)?

I walked thru the wizard 2 times for the same database.  One time choosing transactional replication and then the next time choosing merge (I did NOT remove the transactional before setting up the merge).

It let me....but is it really possible??

Yes, it is possible to enable transactional and merge for a particular database.
