drip line help design

Hi all, I'm new to this.

I have existing underground PVC irrigation for sprinklers. One pvc line (one zone) feeds 2 areas, one area downslope of my driveway and then goes under the driveway and supplies irrigation uphill of my driveway. My house is on a slope. Landscaper changed the irrigation uphill of my driveway with 1/2 poly tube with drip lines due to new plants, etc. The area downslope of driveway was untouched with existing plants and has a combination of sprinklers and retrofit quadbubblers. Obviously this doesn't work with drip lines and sprinklers on the same zone so i want to change out the area downslope from my driveway to drip.

Can I use one of the risers on the downslope and change it to 1/2 polytube with drip and close off all the other risers? The upslope area of the driveway must have a riser connected to 1/2 poly with drip already from landscaper. So the question is can i use 2 separate risers on one zone for drip servicing different areas? or is that a no no? The more proximal drip zone (downslope) will have more pressure than the farther drip area (uphill) and to make it worse its upslope.

Thanks for your help!
