Yes: Yes, you can use the two together. You should know that neither drug has outcome data that support their use.

Yes, But Why?: While you can take both together, polycosonol has not been shown to have a significant effect on blood cholesterol levels. Regarding outcomes, Zetia (ezetimibe) in combination with Simvastatin has shown significant reduction in cardiovascular events in patients with chronic kidney disease. A large trial testing the outcome benefit of Zetia (ezetimibe) added to statin therapy(improve-it trial) is still ongoing.
