Why do you want to do a 2-step over a single infusion?

Read John Palmer's How To Brew. He has a very technical book (which I use for reference), but the online version is great for this level of question.

In general, I think you'll find that a protein and a saccharafication rest are suggested rests (123 and 150-154 maybe).

If you have high PH water, you may want to do an acid rest at 95.

Lots of literature online for this topic.

if using unmalted, whole oats (i.e. quaker old fashioned oats) the lower rest can help a bit.
but if using oat malt, or quick oats, or even flaked oats....skip the lower rest.
