|Yes, Ken, they can cross if the buds/flowers aren't isolated. Here's some information about bagging the flowers that you want to stay pure. http://cubits.org/salsagarden/thread/view/77865/
This photo was enlightening to me. http://cubits.org/salsagarden/thread/view_post/1026511/
l hadn't even considered just bagging one cluster on each plant , so I never tried it. I certainly will this year.

|Yes they will cross pollinate. It should not affect the peppers grown this year. But peppers grown from the seed of the crossed peppers will be affected.
