For this I have to make sure that MSE and Malwarebytes do not conflict. How do I find that out?

They don't. As mentioned by ThrashZone for example.

MBAM as it's called is designed not to conflict with traditional anti-virus products. It won't be recognized in the Windows Action Center as other products would.
