What kind of modifiers to Bluff are you guys packing!?
If in combat with a high level Cleric, the first action should be to Shatter/Sunder their Holy Symbol. No nasty Anti-Undead Channeling (or even Spellcasting) from them! I don't know if this would work with Paladins as well.
And if your GM allows the idea that Word of Undeath and Animate Dead form different Hit Dice Pools, then he is insane!
I have a Gestalted Wizard(Evocation)/Alchemist(Mindchemist and I Internal Alchemist Archetypes) and the two classes do dovetail amazingly well! But like the others have said, none of their abilities will increase through levels of the other.
An Alchemist with the Vivisectionist Archetype might be viable, if you plan on focusing on Ray Spells or Ranged/Melee Touch Spells, so you could tag on Sneak Attack damage to your magical firepower.
At the end of the day, whatever is the most fun to play, and that's the aim of the game.
I take this Feat for my Negative Energy Offensive Channeling Clerics. Tag on the effects of my Shatter Resolve Feat to create a decent Blast/Debuff that scales quite nicely, without being overpowered.

I see where I've gone wrong here. The entry says:
If the target word is boosted, a wordspell with this effect word summons 1d4+1 of the chosen creatures.
And then as you said by looking at the Selected entry, the only Target that the Servitor Words can have, it says that you increase it's Level by three.
If you boost the Selected target word (the only valid target for Servitor words), the effects of all words in the spell are increased by three.
I don't think that's what Boosted does in this case. If you boost the TARGET word, the effects of all Words are increased by three. However, if you are Boosting the EFFECT Word then no increase is incurred. If you look under the Servitor IX Word, it still says that it can be Boosted. How could that be if the end Word would need to be powered by a Level 12 Spell Slot, and there is no such thing as a Level 12 Spell?
Bit of a thread Necro here, but in answer to Real Sorceror's question, I would say that they could not interact at all. There are no rules for creating NEW Words of Power, and with good reason! Think about it, Words of Power are the basis on which modern spells are created, they are the Alphabet of Spellcasting. So to create new Words would be like adding new Letters to the English Language, sort of.
Potions or ELIXERS? Using the reverse engineering aspect of Item Creation, you could commission (or make it yourself if your GM allows Alchemists to take Craft Wondrous Items) a one-shot Elixer of ANY spell that could affect you. Then use your 2nd Level Extracts to power it indefinitely.
I realise that I haven't in fact answered your question at all, but it's something to consider.
I loved Hollowfaust, they were the ultimate in civic recycling, and the Alien nature of the Slarecians suited Psionics perfectly.
I asked whether Mythic characters who could grant spells were demigods in a separate thread, and got a reply from James Jacobs. He said: Technically yes, but not even remotely in the same league as the established Demigods. He went on to say that they may have to come out with new terms for such characters.
With the Human bonus feat you could take Varisian Tattoo or Bloodmage Initiate. Both of which add +1 to your caster level for a specific school of magic (in this case, Evocation!) This would be a more than adequate replacement for the Elven +2 to caster level checks, even if you don't factor in the fact that either or both would double with Spell Perfection. The Elven bonus doesn't.
A nice idea, but wouldn't it still be counted as a dead mouse for the purposes of interaction with other spells (such as Animate Dead?)
