Yes. For example a chess board.

regular hexagon, square, equilateral triangle...apex

Yes.

No. Hexagons and squares will each tessellate by themselves but one can not make a tessellation out of hexagons and squares combined. However, if you add in a third shape, the triangle, one can make a tessellation.

A regular triangle, quadrilateral (i.e., square) and hexagon may be used.
