A?

Does A stay the same even if activation energy or k changes, as long as temperature is the same?

So is A affected by temperature or nearly independent of it?

If T increases, k increases, and if k increases, A increases. This should mean that as T increases, A should increase.

is that why you can subtract them?

Yep, I think the fact that it is constant (in general) is the reason it can be subtracted out of the equation when combining two Arrhenius equations to predict k1 using k2, T2, and T1.
