its o.k. (but know your campus climate)

i have also known people do to both musics orgs (example KKY and PMA) then an NPHC fraternity.

again, know your campus climate.
Well, dual membership in Phi Mu Alpha and Sigma Alpha Iota would not be okay or even possible, since the former is all male and the later is all female.

The rule is: Dual membership is not allowed among Phi Mu Alpha, Sigma Alpha Iota, Mu Phi Epsilon (which is co-ed) or Delta Omicron (also co-ed). Phi Beta (co-ed, as well) might also be included in this group, too; I'm not sure. At the least, even if Phi Beta allowed dual membership, I think Phi Mu Alpha might prohibit it, but it's not a question I've run into.

Dual membership in Phi Mu Alpha and Kappa Kappa Psi is allowed as far as national policies are concerned, since the former is a social fraternity and the latter is "an honorary service organization" (quoting KKY/TBS's national website). As you say, campus climate may be different, and I know there are different feelings about this among members of Phi Mu Alpha. (We used to have a joint agreement with Kappa Kappa Psi on the subject, but it is my understanding that Phi Mu Alpha has withdrawn from that agreement.)

I don't know how Sigma Alpha Iota, Mu Phi Epsilon, Delta Omicron or Phi Beta feel about dual membership with Kappa Kappa Psi/Tau Beta Sigma.
