Can two different sperm cells enter an egg and fertilize? ( 1 cell from one male and another from a different male)

No: It doesn't happen. As soon as sperm #1 joins the egg it is no longer receptive to any others. If by some freak accident it happened the mix would shed as a chromosomal defect unable to form a fetus.
