If I have two serpae Tetras and two black widow Tetras, if I add one more of each fish could I consider that a tetra school. The serpae and black widow tetras ignore each other. But seem very happy and healthy.

They both should be in groups of at least five of their own kind.

I have had more tetras than any other type of fish since I started keeping fish. And none ever schooled with another type. They always kept to their own.

I don't think I'd keep 2 schools of tetras that size in a 10 gallon tank, though.

Depends entirely on the LFS really. Some have no interest, some will buy, some will give you store credit if you frequent that location. Never hurts to ask. Or you could advertise on Craig's List. Or even give them away on.
