I currently have a two-gang switch box (magnetic low voltage dimmer +
a regular switch). The cover plate is 4 1/2" wide. Because of some
remodeling, the switch plate will be covered about 1" on one side. I
can't move the switch box somewhere else, so I'm considering using only
one gang by connecting the two circuits to the same switch.
Unfortunately one of the circuits have an incandescent light fixture on
it, and the other one has multiple low voltage recessed lights
controlled by a dimmer. So, Is it possible to connnect an incandescent
light fixture to a magnetic low voltage dimmer?
It might be possible to get a two gang cover plate with a toggle switch
+ regular switch combination, and cut the plate somehow on the toggle
Any other suggestions?

Why not just do the second half of this. Cut an inch off the current
wall plate, put a sheet of appropriate stuff over the box to separate
the inside of the box from the new sheetrock, and you'll be done.
(I save scraps of vinyl siding for things like this, but you could
probably use something thinner too. .)
