Yes, you can have more than one Python installed at once. The trouble
is all with making sure you start the right one when you need it (so
you have to be explicit).

You really should ask this question on a Blender forum, though. I can
recommend: -- users' forum
 (this is your best bet for a simple installation problem). -- blender site and developers' forum
Since Blender embeds its own Python interpreter, there is some question
as to what exactly it means by "recognizing" an installed Python. I'm
guessing it only uses the library.
