From bitcoin wiki I understand that any SHA256 coin can be merged mined with bitcoin, hence my question.

And my follow-up question is; can a bitcoin clone with a separate blockchain be merged mined with bitcoin?

............It's never late to buy BTC for $1.........
........Services-backed cryptocurrency of $1 000 000 000 000 market .........
..............
...........PRE ICO            Sep.27 – Oct.04............
       ............ICO            Oct.10 – Nov.07............
...................ANN thread      Bounty....................

Only coins that explicitly support being merge-mined can be - so the answer to (both) your questions is no.  Furthermore, Namecoin, for instance, is a coin that explicitly allows both non-merge-mined and merge-mined blocks - but it has explicit provisions to prevent anyone to merge-mine it with itself (for good reason, obviously).

Use your Namecoin identity as OpenID: https://nameid.org/
