Is بوب و جودی acceptable?

No. That's a different sound. As explained in lesson 1, g (sorry, no arabic keyboard atm) is a "uu" sound like in "moon", whereas the little line above it makes it a "oo-ah" sound. That little line makes all the difference.

It's just the word for "and"

وَ means 'and' and is attached to the next word as a prefix in MSA and most (but apparently not all) dialects.
