I dont think its possible to input two ways to a single program. When she will be inputing something to a certain field, you cant enter to another field. Two of your monitors would be attached to same PC so, display would be same but you cant enter input two ways.
You can attach 2 keyboards no doubt, but can input through one at a time.

in a simple sentence:No,unless you dare to be adventurous & willing to spend your professional time on learning intricacies of operating system,softwares & virtual machines which will most likely be worth more than buying a 2nd cheap pc.The best solution for you is to get a cheap intel celeron dual core based desktop which will not cost more than 10000.

There is hardware which you can use to do what you mentioned.

Google for "KVM sharing devices" or "Reverse KVM Switch".

A KVM switch is for controlling multiple PC's from one keyboard/mouse setup., a KVM sharing device works in the reverse, i.e. control one PC from multiple keyboard/mouse setups.

One example may be found at Reverse KVM Switches (AVP2-UK, AVP4-UK)

Even if you do manage to get some of these methods working, it will not be worth your time and could negatively affect your productivity and would be extremely clunky to use.. You could spend hours trying to rectify simple mistakes because of multiple inputs .. Thats why, Its better if you get a cheap pc like whitestar said, and attach both terminals to a single external storage media for convenient output
