In brief: No

5htp is an inhibitory neurotransmitter precursor, and l_tyrosine is a stimulatory neurotransmitter precursor. Taking them together will probably counteract any benefit that you are seeking from either one.

In brief: HTP/Tyrosine

Not advised, since both can increase serotonin in your system.
