Only one can be active at a time -- there's a setting to tell the receive whether FRONT or REAR is active.

It wouldn't be that hard, and honestly you might not even need another amp if you wire them in series to present a light load to the 5200.

I'm confused -- you can use CB-10's for surrounds but the RC-10's are too big? They are basically the same size.

Or is that a type and you meant CR-10's?

Just to be clear -- there is NO crossover for LFE. LFE is a dedicated channel (the "point 1" in 5.1 or 7.1 content) and always goes directly to the subwoofer. There is an LFE LPF (lo-pass filter)...

There is no dedicated SW output for other zones. However, you can still use a subwoofer in Zone 2, it just has to be an "old school" hookup like if you were trying to run a SW off a stereo amp --...

Note that you can actually mute the center channel in PLII Music mode by setting the Center Width parameter to the max value (everything to the FR/FL, nothing to the CC).
