Are both Samhain and Mí na Samhna acceptable for saying November, or is there a time when one is more accepted/appropriate?

Depending upon the context, use of Mí na Samhna could avoid a possibility of confusion with the ancient festival Samhain. In general, Sahmain seems to be usable as “November” without confusion.

no, you have to put Samhain in to the genitive so it would be " Mí na Samhna"
