I have Win 7 Home Premium
I have an Acronis disk image on a second hard drive
I also have an Acronis boot disk plus disk image on DVDs

If I use the media creation tool & use the USB drive to install the free Win 10
and then create a Win 10 disk image using Acronis

can I reinstall either at some later time using the appropriate disk image

Provided Windows 10 is supported by your version of Acronis you should be able to do what you want.  I would recommend installing Windows 10, making the Windows 10 image and then restore both the Windows 7 and Windows 10 images to verify the images.

According to Western Digital - who supplied the Acronis s/w - it is compatible with Win 10
