If you can't connect to the meter can or ahead of it, you can come out of each service disconenct and split bolt to a common electrode.

If you are only connecting to a ground rod a #6 is the largest Code requires (some power companies want a #4)
Split bolts approved for grounding (AFIK all are) are permisible as a "Tap".. not as a splice and the pic shows taps,

Yes, just as shown in this 350 amp Single phase 120v Service setup with 4 spare fuses in case one of the 2 that are going to be in use happen to blow. :)
