In this case, isn't it possible to use both "a" and "i" for english "and"?

No, the conjunction "а" is used to express contrast. For example, "я люблю м’ясо, а вона овочі" - "I like meat, and she likes vegetables." You cannot say "я люблю м’ясо, і вона овочі."

In addition, "а" is only used to connect sentences, not pairs of words.
