If I were to purchase Photoshop elements 15 online, would I be able to install and use Elements 8 using the serial number or something to that extent?

Two elements can work on the same computer.  The early elements should be launched first.  If launching a later elements first, it will take longer to open or stall and never open.  Opened second, you shouldn't have a problem with both running.   I use 3, 4, and 10 on an older PC and 10, 14 and 15 on a later PC.

I should clarify, I mean if I purchase elements 15, am I also buying previous versions that I can use. Thanks for your response

No, the license is diffferent in each version. You can install an older version if you have already bought its own license.
