More important is, that both paints are of the same kind (like: oil-based paint, acrylic paint, latex paint). Semi-gloss is more easily painted over then high gloss, but first better find out what the old paint layer is made of. Check with the help of alcohol - if paint comes off in any way when you rub it with a cloth of alcohol, it's latex or acrylic paint (and can be painted over with acrylics).

yes, although with every paint job you should prepare the surface first. It is easier to put eggshell paint over satin paint finishes, but it is harder to do the opposite. To put a satin paint over an eggshell paint, you would have to sand to obtain a smooth surface first.

if they are the same such as both latex, then yes. if one is oil and the other latex then no. if you are not sure apply a universal primer first.

Can you mix satin paint and flat to make eggshell?

If both cans of paint are interior, latex and the same colour, go ahead. The eggshell finish does not vary much in sheen level from one manufacturer to another. If one can is oil base and the other latex, NO. If the colour of the two cans of paint are not the same... I'd be very careful as you may not like the new colour you get.

you can mix paint of different sheen levels provided they are of the same vehicle or base (i.e.. water based, oil based. Mixing a satin with a semi-gloss will still be reasonably close to an "eggshell" finish.
