I wanna say yes, especially since they are both matched c-wise and capacity.

I do 6s+4s and 5s+4s regularly.......

You can pair those up... C rating doesn't matter as long as the lower C rated pack it high enough. Meaning a 55c and a 25c doesn't equal a 40c pack. It really is a 25c pack.

I have never heard of pairing different cell count batteries.
I was always told they had to be the same.

Putting them in series is fine. 7s and 5s to make a 12s - notice the "S"es.

I would avoid putting them in parallel. If you do try putting a 7s and 5s in parallel (making a 6s2p?), could you film it for me? It should be spectacular. To be clear, DON'T put these packs in parallel. The 29.4 volt 7s will try and "charge" the 21 volt 5s.

If you'd like to experiment with this, try plugging in a 3s and 6s battery on your parallel charge board at the same time.

C rating does matter here. The higher C rated pack (or the pack with lower IR) will actually discharge quicker than the other pack, which is fine as that pack CAN discharge quicker with no problems. I'm not talking a huge difference, it's only slight so nothing to worry about.60% of the time, it works every time!

This is incorrect.

If you had packs in parallel and one has a lower IR, that pack would maintain voltage batter and more mAhs would come out of it compared to the other pack.

In series, mAh is mAh. If you draw out 1000mAh, you have done so to each cell. Even if IRs are different. If one cell voltage sags more than the others, it will drop the total voltages the 12s pack, but current will not change in individual cells, they all remain the same.
