I can't see why not, I have a 9 fix too and I debated both types before correcting my instincts.
To determine your core, you can do a lot of reading, researching and introspecting until the answer will come. I like Naranjo, Ichazo, Maitri, Chestnut and will read Palmer soon. Not a fan of R&H
The stronger you feel towards something, whether in a positive way or wanting to rip out the pages, the closer you are. It's visceral but it pays off.
I know what you mean. I have that same feeling. I know I'm a 4w5, but I do share some feelings with 9s as well. Sometimes, I just really wish for peace, and wish we could all get along. I listen to music a lot and I like to listen to music that makes me feel at peace when I feel like that.

Your main type is Type 4
Your variant stacking is spsxso
I've ALWAYS got 4w5 on enneagram tests but recently I get those resulst^ I see my third highest score is 3..could it be I'm 4w3 after all?
You can't be a "4w9" or a "9w4", or at least there's no real theory around that yet.
Let's say, theoretically, that your core type is 4.
You can either be a 4 with a 3 wing (4w3) or a 4 with a 5 wing (4w5). This is because 3 and 5 are side by side with the 4 and the enneagram 4 will work in the realm of 3 or 5. OR you could be a 9 with an 8 wing (9w8) or a 9 with a 1 wing (9w1)
HOWEVER! There's a thing called trifix.
The main enneagram theory is that you have a core type and two other types:
One MUST be a body/instinctual fix, one MUST be a head/thinking fix and one MUST be a heart/feeling fix. In what order, it depends on you as a person.
These are the heart fixes: 2, 3 and 4
These are the head fixes: 5, 6 and 7
These are the gut fixes: 8, 9 and 1
We apparently all have one of each. So you definitely could be a type 4 and a type 9.
Well, if you truly with it... Don't let anything fuck your happiness, be 4 and 9 if you want :^). But, although it, theoretically there's no 4w9 or viceversa, so, if you want the theoretical way, there's something called 'tritype', that picks up 3 different ennegram types and I got this for you:
