Compatibility is one of the four essential criteria for successful grafting. The stock and scion must be sufficiently closely related taxonomically (i.e. genetically) to form a functional graft union. You would need to contact a local horticulturist to determine what would be compatible for the grafts you have in mind.

This is a fairly technical article, but if you are serious about grafting, you'll want to be doing it correctly to ensure success. https://courses.cit.cornell.edu/hort494/mg/specific.grafting/ReqmtFrm.html
