Of course -- just create a branch in a working directory that's already
on a branch.  (Or use the -r option of [r]tag along with -b to specify a
root revision for the branch.)

You can always merge anything to anything.  (Whether the merge actually
makes sense or not is a different issue.  In the above scenario, merging
as you suggest is certainly the most sensible way to do it.)

It always behooves you to remember (typically with tags) what you've
merged, unless you intend to merge the branch exactly once and then
abandon it.
