In order for acids and bases to neutralize each other, do they have to have the relatively close amounts to one another? Or can you have a lot of base and add a little acid to neutralize the two? (or vice versa).

They will react according to their reaction stoichiometry. So if you want to neutralize Mg(OH)2 with HCl you need twice the moles of HCl
