The new texlive packages should contain all needed provides for the old
tetex ones, so that it could be no problem to replace your current tetex
installation by the texlive packages just now. Only a few packages
actually require tetex, the most of them only BuildRequire it to
generate documentation.

They definitely cannot coexist, because they ship the same stuff.

I also can't guarantee 100% tetex compatibity in the current state.
