Can a team play in BOTH the ENY Premier League AND their 'home' league during the same season?

That decision defaults to the team's 'home' league based on the individual respective member leagues (games) rules, policies and/or guidelines.
Some leagues have abbreviated or limited league match play which may be due to when seasonal may commence.
Day of match play for ENY Premier League games is determined by the designated HOME team.
ENYPL matches may NOT be postponed due to scheduling conflicts with other league matches, whether league regular game or league cup match (ENY State Cup competition does take precedence over ENYPL games). Additionally keeping within the philosophy of the ENYPL, we discourage the scheduling of more than 1 game per day.

Can I play on Saturday or Sunday of the scheduled weekend?

Yes. While the home team typically has a choice of dates and times, if there are unusual circumstances and or/ ODP conflicts which are stated in the rules, changes may be dictated by the Premier League Chairman if adequate notice by the team requiring consideration, in the Chairman’s sole discretion, is given. Please note that MAPS, Super Y League or US Club Soccer activity conflicts will not be considered. Please note that birthday parties, weddings, bar mitzvahs etc will not be considered as an unusual circumstance.
