Let me see if I have this right. Take the 2 brood boxes, split the frames equally, as in brood, pollen, honey, and empty if there are any, and walk away and let one of them produce their own queen? Does it matter if the queen stays in the same box if I don't find her? Should I leave the hives next to each other or move one away for some distance? Thanks

Put the splits and bees in old hive in new hive boxes and move all to a different location a few feet and you will have less drifting. Most bees will stay with the new hive you put them in. Put the old hive boxes in the house or tight closed place for a week.
