In brief: Not many

Some of the personality disorders are incompatible with others, so there are limits.
When people have features of more than one personality disorder that don't meet the full criteria for any one, they can be diagnosed with a "not otherwise specified" personality disorder. Typically, people don't meet full criteria for more than one.
