Question grafting branch to move it.

I have an apple tree that I am training in a cordon espalier.
I would like to add a lower row. - but there are no limbs, just trunk. Can I graft a limb to a lower part of the trunk to start it growing there?

And if so, can I graft 2 this year, one on each side, or should I do one now and one later or next year.
Thanks for your help!

Yes, you can graft to the trunk and you can do more than one at a time. I would want to do both grafts at the same time to help keep the new growth more symmetrical and not give one side a head start.
