Can you combine these from different cameras in the post production process in Adobe PP and export as your standard 30fps?

I presume this is what one would want to do.. the 60fps is there to capture fast motion if needed.

Yes of course.

Just create a 4K@30p project and put your files on the timeline. Everything should play fine by default.

I would not get overexcited by 60p as implemented by many non pro cameras. Basically the level of compression is such that the key frames per second are the same between 30 and 60 p and therefore there is no better fluid motion.

If you have a decent camera and want to have motion freeze it is sufficient to increase the shutter speed example for 30p shoot at 1/125


I have done numerous tests and unless you shoot all intra frames you can't tell apart 30p and 60p shoot at 1/125

Do it! Nobody will understand it anyway unless you slow down too much the 30FPS footage
