Can you use the word "can" together with the modal verb "will" in the same clause?
For example, "I will can..."

No. The two are unrelated and do not belong together. One refers to tense (will) whereas the other (can) refers to ability.

No. You can't say "will can." It makes no sense. Pick ONE: "I will" or "I can."

"can" is a modal or helping verb in and of itself. Technically, it looks like one could use it in the sense of "I will can....", but it's better to use the sense of "can" as " being able to".
So, rather than "I will can..." it makes more sense to have "I will be able to...." if one wants to use a future tense.
