Most of the time, merchant account providers will require you to have another merchant account for that type of business.  If the businesses are similar, that might not always be the case.

You need to contact Paypal and ask them.  Some people might be doing it and they could be just lucky in that they have not gotten caught.  If Paypal says yes, get a reference number and the rep's ID.  I would also ask them to email / fax you the confirmation in case something happens.

One of the bigger reasons is the merchant sets up an identifier - like Office Supplies For Home.  Now, if you set up another business using the same account but you are selling Pet Products, people will wonder why they see Office Supplies for Home and this could increase your chargebacks.  Some Ways to Help Internet Merchants Reduce Fraud and Chargebacks will hopefully help to explain a bit more.
