Can I run a battery and 9v adaptor with OCD for 18v?

nope, when you insert the adapter it cuts off the battery, and even if it didn't you would be putting the the battery and adapter in parallel, which would still be 9V, just with more current. You would have to rewire the pedal so that the adapter doesn't switch off the battery and so that they battery and adapter are in series.

Maybe this will help.
Click the running 18 volts... link.
Scroll down and click the 18v off of two 9v batteries pdf file.
