If I had a patch of everbearing and a patch of june bearing....over time, would the pollen mix together and make mutant strawberries?

I dont think they will, strawberrys propagate by runners. In fact a strawberry does not need to pollinate to produce fruit. The seeds are the result of pollination, which is why you can grow strawberrys indoors, and they'll still produce fruit.
