Yes you can as long as it's Latex (water-based paint ... not oil.) If you are changing your color such as a yellow or very light color, then pour the white a little at a time into the pastel color and test it on the wall a little at a time. If you are working with dark colors such as Mochas it's best to take your two cans of paint back to where you got them (with a sample of the color you want) and let them do the mixing.

What is the difference between acrylic and eggshell paint?

Two entirely different things. Acrylic is a type of water-based paint (usually latex/acrylic) and eggshell refers to the sheen (ie flat, satin, eggshell, semi-gloss, etc...). Also some people assume eggshell refers to a certain color, however with many paint companies, the term "eggshell" refers to the sheen texture (feels like an egg shell) and not the color of an egg (which, of course, depends entirely on the type of bird if came from). :)

Can you paint eggshell latex paint over a latex high gloss paint?

Painting over just about any sheen is possible. The only thing that I would recommend is to primer the surface 1st for a better application of the eggshell. If you do not primer the surface there may be a chance that the high gloss will show through and end up costing you more money to apply the much more expensive eggshell instead of the inexpensive primer. Unless you have plenty of paint for a second application of the eggshell. Then that would be okay. I do believe you can cover any sheen ( depending on color ) with two coats.
