Hello,
I got my PC build by some known person, since I don't have much knowledge regarding it.
Since last year my PC was getting BSODs, recently I got changed my HDD, and finally it fixed.

So I'm bit cautious to try anything different, just want to know can I add these two RAM together? After some online searching I found I need to use two same GB Ram for best results. But the answers regarding frequency difference is still confusing. Any one can help me?

Even if the same brand you should never mix two different specs, different speeds and timings is a recipe for disaster, bite the bullet and buy a matching pair and sell the present stick to someone that needs one.
