    Sorry if this question is basic.
    Can a small EM field be superimposed into a large EM field without
    the larger one interfering with the small one?

    What exactly do you mean by "interfere?"

    I mean, the larger field can have no effect on the smaller field.
    and that it can exist in isolation to the the larger field.

    The resulting field will be a superposition of the 2 fields, it is not possible for them to exist separately.
