The nearest thing would be to create a separate procedure
FillCombo Cbo1
FillCombo Cb02
'...

Sub FillCombo (cbo as Combobox)
With cbo
.Additem "One"
.Additem "Two"
.Additem "Three"
End With 
end sub

You could also do it this way.
Sub Q_28133515()
    Dim vItem As Variant
    For Each vItem In Array("One", "Two", "Three")
        Cbo1.AddItem vItem
        Cbo2.AddItem vItem
    Next
End Sub

Open in new window


Or, passing a parameter array:
Sub Q_28133515(ParamArray parmControls())
    Dim vItem As Variant
    Dim ctlThing As Variant
    For Each ctlThing In parmControls
        For Each vItem In Array("One", "Two", "Three")
            ctlThing.AddItem vItem
        Next
    Next
End Sub

Open in new window

The invoking code would look like this, resembling your multiple parameter With statement.
    Q_28133515 Cbo1, Cbo2
