dear Junjie Wang,
if you comment out (or replace by warnings) the error messages in virtual.x
that make the code stop when interpolate is .true. then the code 
performs the interpolation and produces a pseudopotential (I think you 
already tried that).
What I was suggesting is that you generate a *virtual* pseudo made by
0% pseudo1 + 100% pseudo2 (which should interpolate pseudo2 on the grid 
of pseudo1) and check that the results you get for this virtual 
agree to your satisfaction with what you can calculate directly with 
If this is the case this means that the interpolation is working fine 
and you could mix the two pseudopoteianls also in other fractions.
If not there is something wrong in the interpolation.
In any case please report back on the outcome of your tests.
thank you,
