Why are ghost peppers so hot
Do more peppers mean more heat?
Put simply, if you increase the amount of capsaicin per bite, it gets hotter.
So if it's just a sauce that's basically just pure paprika, then the mixture of a very hot pepper and a milder pepper is somewhere in between, and adding the mild pepper dilutes the sauce - a spoonful of it contains not that much capsaicin.
But if it's a dish that consists mostly of other things, with ghost pepper in the sauce to heat it up, and on top of that you add another pepper to the sauce, then the other pepper will add heat - there will be more capsaicin in it every bite. Will it get noticed? If it's a banana pepper, no - it's orders of magnitude milder that you'll never notice it. If it's a habanero, it probably isn't much milder than the ghost pepper.
However, other peppers can add great flavor. There is a wide variety of chilies to choose from, and it is perfectly reasonable to use half a dozen different chilies in a single dish to get the full flavor you want. This is still true if you're making a really hot dish. That said, when you talk about "the hottest foods" and ghost peppers it sounds like your goal is really just to make something really hot, not something you can actually taste - you can definitely get a lot of heat from get other peppers. If you're using the hottest peppers, it's likely either a gimmick or a matter of burning your tongue off so you can't taste anything else anyway.
Of course, this assumes that you are actually using all of the pepper to get all of the heat out of it. If not, then ... why are you studying ghost peppers? See Cos Callis's answer for more explanation.
