Other people here have two iPad on one computer with one iTunes account. What you need to do is to turn off automatic syncing in iTunes and do it manually via check marking what you want to sync to what iPad. You are right that the two iPads have to have different names. To change the name of an iPad connect it to iTunes and click on the iPad's name in iTunes and change the name like you would change a file name. You really do not want to have two different iTunes account since it complicates sharing apps and other items between the two iPads.
It's not a problem at all. I have two iPads connected to my system and it works just fine. iTunes will identify each iPad separately, so you can control what apps and other content are synched to each iPad. All your content in iTunes, other than movie rentals, can be put on both iPads.
Note that you do not need to set things for manual management if you don't wish to. You can select what gets synched to each iPad and still use the standard sync; you just have to control music via playlists. You can use manual management, though, if that makes it easier to control what music and videos go onto each iPad (with manual management you can just drag tracks or albums to the iPad and not have to create playlists to separate things out).
