some people run their two queens side by side in 10 frame boxes, then stack the suppers in the middle. a nuc migratory top can be used on the left & right side to cover the open space.

If I'm understanding what you're hoping to accomplish.

So, you will be having two split deeps each containing queens therefore two brood boxes. Then putting supers on top of that. I am in my first year so sorry if I am off topic. I just want to understand different 'keeping styles.
My questions are:
Will that be enough brood area? (will the queen stay below the supers)
Will there be a queen excluder between the supers and brood boxes?
What if the excluder is not used and the supers are accessible to both colonies?
Why is a two queen hive a lot of work?
