### Two symbols together

Is possible create my own symbol from two symbols? I want draw one symbol, move left and draw second on the same place.

Sure, for example using `\rlap` or `\llap` to set a symbol without a width. Define a macro for it:

`\newcommand*{\sym}{\rlap{O}+}`

Then just write `\sym` in the text.
