Yes, however one of them will run significantly slower.

"2 M.2_2 socket shares PCIe clock with PCIeX1_1, when PCIeX1_1 or PCIeX1_3 are occupied, M.2_2 only can support SATA mode. "

THe M.2_2 socket will work in NVME mode as long as both PCIeX1_1 and PCIeX1_3 are empty.

Do you already have one or both? Why do you want to have a separate one for OS, and another for apps? As said above, the 2nd slot will run at ~half speed, better off just getting a single drive that's big enough for whatever you want to put on there. Most use cases don't really benefit noticeably from an NVMe drive compared to a SATA one anyway.
