Is it possible to run the same version of MySQL on two servers, but use MySQL Community on one and MySQL Enterprise on the other?

I have two servers with identical hardware for running MySQL one is the development environment and the other is production. Currently, we are considering upgrading from MySQL Community (free) to MySQL Enterprise ($5,000 per year).

Is it possible to upgrade only the production server to MySQL Enterprise and keep the same version of MySQL (8.xx) as is on the development server which will still be running MySQL Community?

Yes, you can do this.

Remember that Oracle will eventually ask every person in the company "How many MySQL servers do you have?"

Also remember that Oracle may make changes in their enterprise versions to make them incompatible with the open versions.
