would this work?

ok for my school music competion i was planning on doing inferno (unleash the fire) by symphony x. however the solo has notes on the 22 fret and i play a 21 fret guitar. I cant bend up cos it's a tapping bit.
Then i realised i already know the sea of lies solo by the same band.
Could i mix these together and play inferno except the solo, which would be the sea of lies solo?
Would i have to change the key of the solo?

I'd recommend playing the solo as it is, but try moving the tapping part down an octave. Unless that won't work :\ or you could always substitute your own part in.

Why not just improvise the solo?

different solos might be in different key you can transpose it but why not try to improvise the solo or at least that one tapping part...or do a tapbend?...or maybe borrow a guitar with 22 frets

So long as the solos are in the same key and the same length (you can accomodate for either if you're willing) then you can do that, however you can theoretically play past the 21st, I've seen Andy James play the "25th" before but he was picking I think, tapping might be harder though. Give it a try.

You don't need to play exactly the same solo. You can have some different parts (like that tapping part, just play another note instead of the 22nd fret). You can also make your own solo that has nothing in common with the original. And I wouldn't play a solo in another song. They might be in a different key, different length and different tempo. Even if it had the same key, tempo and length, the chords could be different and some of the notes would not fit some of the chords.
