Nope. You cannot do that, since scalars don't follow vector algebra.

No, only like quantities can be added, so even if both quantities are vectors eg force and acceleration, or both scalars like energy and time, they still cannot be ...

Yes, we can multiply.

We can multiply a scalar by a vector because multiplying a scalar by a vector is just like adding the vector to itself again and again.

lets try it \[\alpha=6\\ \vec v=\langle1,2,0\rangle\] \[\alpha+\vec v=6+\langle1,2,0\rangle=\,?\] \[\alpha\times \vec v=6\langle1,2,0\rangle=\langle6\times1,6\times2,6\times0\rangle=\langle 6,12,0\rangle\]
