Can I mix breast milk with regular milk?

In brief: Yes

Although breast milk is better, all infant formulas have the recommended nutients.
Thus mixing is fine. Be aware that some babies react negatively with gas, fussiness etc. To a new formula. Also sometimes the taste of the mix may require an adjustment period.

In brief: Yes

Sure, human breast milk can be topped off with formula for a bottle, or in an older kid (usually past 12 mos) it can top off cow's milk in a cup.
