In brief: Yes

Yes, if you don't have enough stored milk for a meal, it's fine to "top it off" with formula.

In brief: Yes

There is nothing wrong with mixing formula and breast-milk, especially if you do not have enough breast-milk in to feed your baby.
Of course the best food for a baby is food from another human, i.e. Breast-milk, but the next best thing is soy or animal based (cow) substitutes.
