Yes, pull the USB of the Mini you've finished working on (don't forget to save the config to file), plug in the USB to the other Mini, load the appropriate config file for it and synch.
I do the fronts separately to see at how similar they look. Some areas of the FR might be different for left than for right, but they should be fairly close to each other if their placements are good.
Whether you can copy to the other speaker depends on if the deviation is there for both. IOW, you shouldn't copy it over if one speaker has a dip and the other has a peak at or near the same freq.
The subs are EQ'd together, as they don't (usually) handle directional cues.
Start by working on the large amplitude and broadband deviations in the bass, they'll be readily apparent. You may find that is all you need.
It can get a bit fiddly when you work on the XO region, as you'll be pulling the USB to the front's Mini (save to file), plugging in the USB to the sub's Mini, loading a new config file and synching, before working on the subs. You may have to do this more than once. Alternatively, you could use a second PC with a copy of the plugin installed. :shrug:
Yes, once you're done, you no longer need the PC.
Hopefully, you enjoy doing such things and all goes smoothly for you.
