I think this site will tell you most of what you want to know.

Personally, i would rather build a faster computer with a single core. Other than doing high end graphics, or running a server, you would not be able to use much of a dual cpu motherboard.

Easiest way to get two PCs to share one graphical output device(or vice versa) is to use a switch, you can pick them up from any decent electronics retailer, basically a double ended VGA cable and a switch where they join to switch between the two inputs.
