From what I have seen if you use a skill like HYT it will place a cooldown on all other torpedo skills the exact same length as the cooldown on the weapon itself, not the cooldown of the skill. So you can use both HYT and Spread, but you'll have to wait for the weapon to be ready to fire the second skill off.

The only exception to this would be if you use a skill that you have multiple ranks of, like HYTI and HYTII you can't use both, so always drop the lower rank...
