I have a modem and router combo from my isp. It only supports 2.4 ghz. If i buy a router which supports 2.4 ghz and 5.0 ghz will i be able to get 5.0 ghz?

Yes if you buy a router which has both 2.4 and 5 Ghz you will get both.
Also can i use both the router i am going to buy and the one given to me by my isp as wifi accesses and to connect lan cables?

You would need to have different SSID's for each router. Actually 3 SSID's . One for the modem router's 2.4 One for the new router's 2.4 and one for the new router's 5 Ghz.

And, of course, you want your multiple wireless networks to be using non-interfering channels.

And to add to this, you want to make sure you devices are capable of 5GHz.
