Bringing personal effects from 2 countries?

I was reading through many posts dealing with bringing personal effects into Switzerland when one is relocating and it seems that there is an 18 months maximum period.

My first question is: can we bring personal effects from two countries? My shipment from the US has already cleared the country but I was only there for a little while. I am originally from France and still have a bunch of stuff there.

Can I just bring them over the border in a truck or will I not be allowed as I have already completed the 18.44 for the stuff arriving from the US?

Also I am considering buying a car in France and bringing it in Switzerland under personal belongings. Do I need to wait to own the car for more than 6 months before bringing it over or can I bring it over since it will be a model that is a few years old?

I had to sell my car in the US as the shipping cost were prohibitive and the car was not worth it.

Thanks for answering all my questions with your usual expertise!
