I don't see any reason why you couldn't combine either the normal spellcaster with a substitution that replaces the animal companion or the Complete Warrior Ranger with a substitution that replaces the animal companion.
Or a ranger with both the substitution from PHII that replaces the animal companion and the substitution from Complete Champion that replaces spellcasting.
Of course, you couldn't add a substitution that replaces spellcasting to the complete warrior ranger that has no spellcasting.
Nor could you take two substitution features that replace the same ability....
