Can I add worker bees from various colonies to make nucs. Or will they fight even though they are queenless in a new home?

I've done it without issues. Kinda like adding a frame of brood with workers on the comb to a weak colony.

I have heard that you need bees from at least 3 different hives when you are making packages, so I would assume you need something similar making nucs. I think using more hives results in more "confusion" from the bees so they do not fight.
