This was me, a few years ago. I could have written this, replacing Hellenic with Kemetic and Apollo with Hetharu. (Actually, I sort of did, here; while it's not directly applicable to your situation, it might shine some light. I don't know.)

To actually answer your question: yes, there are many, many Cauldronites who worship deities from different pantheons. I do work with Celtic and Hellenic deities, though not any that you're working with. (I tried making an offering to Manannan once, when I was on this honoring all of the Tuatha De kick, and got a "Well, kid, that's nice, but you're not mine. Just so you know.") Rhiannon I've never had contact with, and I have a strong feeling telling me to stay away from Apollon, at least for now.

A good way to stay away from the fluffy bunny eclectic pagan pit of doom and unicorns is research, imo. Those that are willing to learn and make an effort to do so can never be fluffy. And there's nothing wrong with being eclectic; it works for some people, it doesn't for others. There's a bit of a knee-jerk reaction to it in some circles, but if you do it intelligently, it can be really meaningful. (And I link Darkhawk's essay On Eclecticism for the third time today...)

I'd poke around the Ta Heira SIG some; there are several Apollo devotees on the forum, some eclectic, some recon, some somewhere in between, and I'm sure they could offer their experiences with working with him in a Hellenic framework. And remember: everyone starts somewhere, and surely Apollo will know this and understand it, especially if you approach him with respect.

And good luck! I know how much of a headache it can be. You'll figure it out.
