I'd like to connect 2 procurves with trunked ports (2 aggregated ports).
And I also would like this link to transport more than 1 vlan tag (3 likely). The HP manual doesn't mention this type of configuration at all. Looks like static LACP is the way to do it but I'd like to make sure it is possible before wasting time on testing.
Any ideas ?

To configure the trunk between the 2 switches you should configure a trunk on both procurve devices.
HP-Switch(Config)#trunk a4-a7 trk1 trunk
After the trunk has been configured you should add the trunk interface to the requiered VLAN's
HP-Switch(Config)#Vlan 10 (Creates VLAN 10)
HP-Switch(vlan-10)#tagged trk1 (Makes interface trk1 an 802.1q trunked port. Tagging this port with vlan 10 means that interface trk1 accepts vlan 10 tagged packets)
If you want to add untagged ports on the procurve switch you should add them too
HP-Switch(vlan-10)#untagged 1-5 (Puts interface 1 to 5 into vlan 10 as untagged, meaning any packets that are untagged are on vlan 10)
