Yes, but only if the both routers permit WDS so one can behave as an access point while other behaves as a repeater (alternate access point) This can be done wired or wirelessly, wireless more cost efficient but wired is more performance efficient (when doing it wired-style WDS it's called bridging)

You cannot have two DSL modems connected to the same DSL account.

On a typical consumer account the ISP issues one IP address per modem per residence. There are account configurations you can buy so that you can have more than one IP and use more than one modem at a given residence. But typically you only need one modem. You don't have to use a firewall/router but to secure your network it's preferable. Once network traffic ingresses from your ISP past your modem, you have a choice to use a combination of network devices whether wired or wireless. You can bridge two access points together, use a wireless extender, use a wired solution to connect a switch into your router if there are ports available.
