You can switch an emergency light off but it must be arraigned with automatic controls to come on during a power failure.
2) You can not have the emergency circuit and the normal circuit in the same single gang switch box.
3) Two pole switches are not listed for use on two independent circuits.
Most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complicated; therefore simplicity should be a key goal in design and unnecessary complexity should be avoided.
