Would it be OK to combine a IG and a Space Marine army? Such as mixing Cadians and Space Marines?
Unfortunately, there is no way of deploying Imperial Guard units and Space Marines units (from "Codex: Space Marines", "Codex: Dark Angels", "Codex: Blood Angels", "Codex: Black Templars" and "Codex: Space Wolves") in a single detachment.
The exception are the Grey Knights who are part of the Ordo Malleus. See "Codex: Daemonhunters" (p.21) for the rules on inducting Imperial Guard allies in a Daemonhunter army or Daemonhunter allies in an Imperial Guard army.
I'm sure that if you are playing a game at home with friends, you can do it, but as said above, you are not legally allowed to do that. The only way to have both forces together is to have two complete armies (1 hq and 2 troops for both SM and IG) and just have them allied together.
I play my 40k with friendly fire.
Finally fixed the link!
I had the same question with you, I wanted to field Basilisks (drool...) alongside my Space Marines and so read to exhaustion all the codexes of all his righteous forces trying to find a tiny window... but there was none. It's sad isn't it? It makes me wanna cry Why can't They fight under the same flag for Emperor's sake!
Sure you can. Just take two detachments.
If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.
Keep in mind that you can do this with your opponent's consent. Heck, you can do anything you want with your opponent's consent, so if it makes sense to you and your opponent, may as well go for it. Just make sure to agree to things that your opponent will want as well.
You could only combine them in apocalypse.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
