Actually, the reasons you have stated are the reasons to prefer building from source rather than installing binary packages.

As far as I know, you can only have one binary package installed at a time (thus, the answer to your question would be 'No').

However, it is possible to have several built-but-not-technically-"installed" source builds. Atm I have 3-- 1.3.4., which was the currenty-available build when I swapped distros; 1.3.5, the most recently available build; and 1.1.41, the last known good build for Myst, which I felt like playing last week.
