If I were to take two 5 gallon extract kits to create ten gallons, would this work out? Or is there something else I need to know, also After we boil in keggle can we put the batch into two different five gallon fermenters? Any help would be much appreciated !!!!

Do you mix both batches together before bottling, I guess I'm just worried about the two batches tasting differently

I wouldn't recommend mixing them before bottling, you just risk oxidizing the finished beer. Using two fermenters would be the perfect opportunity to use two different yeasts to get a feel for the differences between them.
