Can I use a cream with salicylic acid in the morning and a cleanser with salicylic acid at night? Would it be too much for my skin?

In brief: Depends

Most of these are low percentage products that have minimal direct effect.
At most you would expect some drying. With these or any other skin product you test them over time.If you are excessively or reddened you cut back on the duration or frequency you apply them.If regularly scheduled applications have no side effects, this can be a good basic skin plan.
