I would get them to a humidor as soon as you can. This becomes more important depending on the humidity of the region you live in.

Can you put different cigars together in on humidor?

It depends on the cigars. Some of us do, others do not. If you smoke flavored cigars like Lars Tetens and Acids, don't put them in the same humidor as your Cohibas and Punches if you don't want all your cigars to taste like Lars. I wouldn't put really powerful cigars in the same humidor as mild cigars, because the mild cigars will absorb the flavor of the strong ones. But as far as putting...oh, Partagas and Punch real problem.

What kills mold on cigars?

Once you have mold you pretty much need to start over. Every cigar in the humidor will be affected. (infected) You could try leaving the humidor open for a week or so and giving it a light sanding and re-humidify it with out cigars for a week or two, then test it with some expendable cigars to see if it ruins them or not. Use a digital hygrometer and the crystal jars not the sponges with water. It make it easier to regulate and keep the mold away. If the humidor is a cheapy, I would toss it and start over.
