  1. yes, with two tshark instances running at the same time. You cannot read 2 capture files into the same tshark instance unless you merge them first via mergecap.
  2. yes, either capturing on two (or more) interfaces into a single pcap, or with multiple tshark instances capturing on single interfaces
