Canon camera from 2007 on. Plus YN-622C.

Both flashes off-camera:
580EXII on a 622, fully controllable from camera;
430EX on a 622, E-TTL controllable from camera but Manual levels set on-flash.

One flash on-camera and one off-camera:
Say 430EX on-top. manual levels set on-flash;
580EXII on a 622, fully controllable from camera.

Hybrid triggering:
Not available - there must be only one Master working with the camera, and that is the 622 on-top. If you try to set the off-camera 580EXII to Master, it will switch back to the 622 transmitter settings. The 622s have a"Mix" mode which might make an off-camera Master able to be set up, but there would then be no control from the camera!

Canon did not build the necessary digital control lines into the hotfoot until the mark IIs were released. The 430EX can handle E-TTL, however.
