I have 2 bars of KVR800D2N6/2G and 2 bars of KVR800D2N5/1G and want to insert them into ASUS P5Q-EM which supports up to 16 GB of such memory.

The main problem is - first two are N6 and second two are N5. Are they compatible?

They are compatible. N6 modules just have slower timings. Installed together faster modules will work with slower timings.
