If you're going to mix and match, I recommend getting threaded fittings so it is easier to switch back and forth.  Either that or have dedicated tubing that can be swapped out.

The pin locks can be converted to ball lock kegs right?

You can have dedicated fitting for pinlocks as Tom suggests.  I do have one pinlock that was converted to a ball lock.  The LHBS that sells a lot of kegs had special posts made that do this.  Once that was done it cost the same as a ball lock.  I got this as all the ball locks were in the seperate warehouse waiting for the new store location to open, where they have a lot more space.

If you cannot find them at your LHBS you can order them online.  I found them at www.cornykeg.com.  You will need to know the type of pin lock keg you have.  It will either be a Firestone or a Cornelius.  The threads are different for each.  The type of keg should be stamped on the outside.
