By "link" I presume you mean a 1" section. Both inner and outer half-links.
Putting two replacement pins next to each other** is not a problem (so long as you don't make sticky/tight links, which would be a problem anywhere). Just be sure that you never
replace a replacement pin. **I.e. on adjacent links. You should never use two replacement pins on the same half-link. The pin goes in the lead hole of the outer half-link — (A) in the diagram
Also, add a longer piece, then re-measure the chain and trim the new addition. Due to differences in frame geometry you can't use another bike as a template.
While you're at it, this is a good time to add a Wipperman Connex or Superlink III to your chain. Be sure to get the right size. There are several different versions for 10-speed chains.
