I have Xbee Series 2B Pro with Wire Antenna

To be exact : Xbee Series 2 Pro Wire Antenna Modules XBP24 BZ7WIT 004

Can Xbee Series 2B interconnect with different antenna types.

So if i get a Xbee Series 2B with Chip/U.FL/RPSMA Antenna can my Wire Antenna Xbee's communicate with them.

Also can Xbee Series 2B Normal communicate with Xbee Series 2 Pro.

Yes. The antenna type dictates range, not what devices the radio can communicate with.

Yes. The Pro models are just higher-powered (larger range) versions of the same device.

However, it doesn't really make sense to mix antenna types and power levels in the same network. The lowest power/lowest range device will dictate the spacing required in your network.
