Gnomes on Golarion can't interbreed with much in general. From Gnomes of Golarion: Despite an inability to crossbreed with other races, gnomes’ constant hunt for new sensations means they rarely restrict their liaisons to their own kind. Gnomes are not a fecund race, and as they originally stem from the deathless realm of the First World, ...

Half-elves are a 'subspecies' of elf in all respects except for actually being elves. This is demonstrated by the Monster Manual which lists Half-Elf under Elves, and is a consequence of their 'Elven-blood' feature.

While maybe not strictly RAW, it works for me. Your (or you DM's) mileage may vary. Edit: I would not allow them ...

Half-elf are a result of a union between a human and a elf. In-game they are not a distinct race in of themselves. From the d20 SRD Half-elves are not truly an elf subrace, but they are often mistaken for elves. Half-elves usually inherit a good blend of their parents’ physical characteristics. As far as the game mechanics goes they are a race ...
