Yes, that's definitely possible! The computer would need an audio
interface that can give you guys one input each. Then you simply route
those two inputs audio into two looper plug-ins -  one each. And then
you make sure your two MIDI pedals are not sending the same events
over the same MIDI channel, when you assign who of you is going to
externally control what software function.

Yes. MIDI foot pedals is a powerful way of controlling whatever
processing done in Live.

Hard to tell you what you "should do". If you want to use the RC-50 I
assume the best setup would be to run it as the MIDI Clock sync slave
to Live.
