I own a 2 el 40 cushcraft antenna. Could I put spreaders on the boom and add/convert it to a 2 el yagi for 40 and a 6 el quad on 10 on the same boom? How much interaction would there be?

It's hard to be precise. The 10M elements still will "see" the 40M elements as they are close to resonant at their 4th harmonic, so some adjustments might be necessary on the new antenna. You could model it with EZ-NEC if you're familiar with that software.
