    I hook two separate Amps running at 16 Ohms.

    Or two separate Amps at 8 Ohms?

    Am I able to run just one Amp, while other is still plugging in and off? Can I play two Amps simultaneously at 16 Ohms?

    These Eminence speakers I believe are G12-75 clones. Bang for the buck, best little Cab going IMO.

    No matter how hard I try to escape Crate, it morphs and keeps hanging around...

    Nevermind...

    1 Amp into Cab at 8 Ohms sent into equal Cab.

    NOT two Amps simultaneously.

    Because they are parallel inputs. If it was "stereo" and had a separate input for each of 2 speakers, you could.

    No you cannot plug 2 amps to the same speaker.

    (unless) as Jethro pointed out:
    a stereo speaker which has 2 separate isolated inputs:
    to drive 2 separated discreet sets of speakers.

    (the 2 separate sets of discrete speakers might be in one single cabinet)
