Yes, you can use as many API as you require. But getting them to talk to each other may cause headaches and your users are likely to have to sign in to each which isn't a great user experience. Sharing data between the APIs is likely to need to use your app as a middle-man which means lots more data traffic and risks of errors. There would also be a large risk of significant data duplication across both APIs.

It would be best to select the API that does what you need and use that one rather than using parts of more than one API.

I hope that helps.

Not too familiar (yet!) with Android, but to simply incorporate more API, wouldn't you just find the compile line available for your build.gradle file? Then access the API as necessary.
