You can hold as many licenses as you want but would need to fulfill the requirements of each one to maintain its currency. There is no such thing as a frozen FAA ATPL you would convert to a CPL/IR. Most of the topics on here are about converting the other way FAA to JAA.

Converting to FAA will be a lot easier and cheaper, I think you will be surprised at the exams required, very, very easy compared to JAA. You will probably need to do a few hours for the CPL and a few hours for the IR and take the tests, you can after all already fly a plane with G painted on the back so why make you jump through hoops like 15 hours IR training just because it has an N instead.
