Switch-control with motion-sensor control.

I two motion-sensors, 50 ft apart ,at Front & Back entrances/exits.

For constant illumination, can a SPS be connected between the "Line" & "Load" wires without affecting the S-S circuitry of the M-S's?

I do not know the answer to your question. However, why not use a three way switch and avoid the issue altogether.

You can put a spst switch before the motion sensors, and for constant illumination, (if the motionsensors are set for it) turn the switch off and on within one second, they will stay on. You just have to make sure all the lights are in the same mode before you flip the switch.
I agree with Bob, to install three way switches at the front and back, so you can turn them of and off at will.
