I don't know of any reason why you can't or shouldn't!

Sure you can! I actually like to mix rock to have a more diverse tank!

No reason not to unless you want an area specific tank (Fiji, Australia, Indo-Pacific, etc.)

Some rock has a very specific look, so if you want a homogenous looking rock scape some area LR might not look "natural" together. Then again, if all you are going for is biodiversity you can always stack the off looking rock in the back.

I wouldn't see why you shouldn't. I used to have Tonga Branch with Fiji rock and it looked fine.
