    I'm trying to connect my CD player to an amp. Instead of an RCA male-to-male cable, I have an RCA male to 3.5mm female cable, and a 3.5mm male to RCA male cable. Could I join those together to make a makeshift RCA male-to-male?

    Yes, but you make the signal less robust by doing so. It is always better to keep analogue connections both as simple and as short as possible in order to avoid degradation of that signal. The connection midway simply introduce a point at which the signal can be degraded.
