Is there a way to do such a thing? Like using a filter on a lens, then on top of the first filter, put another filter? Is there such a thing or am I just being too ambitious?

Haha....:D

Nothing wrong except when using with wide angles, it may block the field of view of the lens if you stack too much and you will get vignetting. Also, take care of flare if the filters are not multicoated.

it depends on the type of lens and type of filter.

if the filter is not coated, beware of lens flare (this: http://www.newmexicophotos.com/blog/photos01/la-luz-lens-flare.jpg), and reflections (within the filters)

also, if its a super WA lens, eg 12-24, 10-20 etc, there might be significant vignetting (http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/5514/vignetting241055dds9.jpg)

for example, its fine using my hoya HMC filters stacked up (CPL+UV and possibly more) on my 80-200, but not on my 12-24
