Will these...breed? If I put them together? I plan on getting one mystery and one golden inca. Apparently they're all related to the apple snail, or something. It's very confusing to me right now. Thanks very much~

No. They may be of the same genus but they however cannot crossbreed. The only species that can crossbreed so far are the Asolene spixi and Marisa cornuarietis. Whether the Pomacea insularum and Pomacea canaliculata can as both are categorized under canaliculata complex given the many similarities both species have, it remanis debatable.

The only reason I advise against combining both is the fact that juvenile canas can eat their share of foods rather aggressively, not to mention they have cannibalistic tendencies devouring much smaller snails especially if given the opportunity.
Adult canas become more passive though so it is possible for you to mix both without the other being deprived of its share. Diffusas in general are very passive.
