Didn't Louise Dearman play Elphaba, did she play the role of Glinda also?

So who paired up with who in both Elphaba and Glinda?

Yes, Louise is the only actress on either side of the Atlantic who has played both Glinda and Elphaba. There have been so many pairings it would be impossible to list every single example of who played opposite who.

Lucy Van Gasse was also the recent standby for Glinda for Gina Beck (Went to vacation in London and saw Wicked twice and both times Gina was sick and Lucy stood in for her).
