If I washed down walls with TSP that were painted with a latex semi-gloss, can I apply joint compound with paint mixed in to texture the walls? MUST I use primer before this? Can I mix in primer? Do I need to use primer before painting it? I'm trying

Wash the walls down first with the TSP to clean off any crud, then patch as needed and apply texture, let dry and use primer  and then paint as needed. So clean, patch, texture, primer , and last paint

I would spray texture. And no, you can't mix joint compound with paint to create a texture compound.
