Can I cook scones and shortbread in the same type pan?

Yes, but if it is your first time, I would just use the pan that the recipe calls for. I think that most of my scone and shortbread recipes just call for baking them on a cookie sheet, but there are a few scone recipes that call for a 9-inch cake pan, and in that case you'll want to follow the recipe so that they are the proper thickness; same goes for any scone recipes that call for a specific size pan. But not at the same time :)

I always baked my scones and shortbread free-form because why dirty another dish just to pat out the dough or make them look pretty? That's why people invented icing and shortbread toppings, right? :) My friends won't know these are homemade if they look too least this is what I tell myself. I'm sure they will be delicious regardless of the vessel you chose to bake them in!

Thanks so much for the help.

Sure, I don't see why not. Since a scone dough isn't very uniform, you're probably not going to get a good pattern from the embossment, but if all you have is the shortbread pan, the scones will bake fine on it.

Not at the same time, but if you have a shortbread pan(round with embossed shapes) can you bake scones in it and then cut them at the score lines?

What, like a sheet pan? Sure! At the same time? I wouldn't recommend it.
