Chris,
Chinos are not considered dress pants, and it is unlikely that the shirt you have in mind is truly a dress shirt. That said, pairing chinos with a linen shirt is classic summer casual wear and very versatile. Dress down with deck shoes sans socks, dress up with socks/penny loafers and a navy blazer. If the pants are pressed and the shirt is long sleeve with a button-down collar, you could even add a casual cotton knit necktie.

If wearing a little heavier cotton/linen shirt, would it be okay to wear in cooler weather instead of an all-cotton shirt?
Yes. There's no rule dictating that linen or cotton/linen shirts are acceptable only in scorching heat. If a super-breathable casual shirt is a priority with you--and I don't blame you if it is--then wear a linen or cotton/linen shirt even in coolish temperatures. It's your body.
