how about textures? Can I easily blend 2 textures? Say I have 1 texture for the face of an avatar, and then I have a alpha texture (like redish in the cheeks). Can I blend both to make the appearance the guy is blushing or something?

This can be achieved using a custom shader which interpolates between the two textures using the alpha component of the redish cheeks with a slider to control the characters blushing.
I assume that you want this for a dynamic effect, because if the redish cheeks are fixed then I would recommend painting it straight onto the texture.
Check out JessyUVs videos on YouTube:
Jessy explains the fundamentals of writing custom shaders fantastically. Without these videos I wouldn't be able to write any sort of shaders! I am eternally grateful to Jessy (if he's reading) :-)
