No. It would be pretty tricky to do, especially with different chip
versions and generations, but even with identical cards it's probably
a fair bit of effort that would be better spent on proper X server
support. X server internals aren't really my area of interest so I
can't tell you much more.

Current Nvidia cards that support 4 heads are actually dual-GPUs on a
single card, so the problem is largely the same. Sorry to be the
bearer of bad news.
