    Yes to both questions.

    'The heir apparent solemnly mounted the throne.'

    solemnly - adverb

    Rover's answer is actually fantastic, move. Moreover, note that you're not supposed to ask people to do your homework for you here.

    heir - noun

    apparent - adjective

    solemnly - adverb

    I agree about the rudeness, and the ingratitude of some posters.
    But I wouldn't call "apparent solemnly" a collocation simply because the words are in apposition.
