I'm about to for the first time and buy 2 frags. Should I get same species or different? Also how you put frags on the rock?

Get what you like. You should first research the corals so you know what care you need to provide and what the corals prefer as far as lighting, water flow and water parameters. Most corals can be glued onto your rock with super glue gel, but not all. Again research is necessary (or ask specific coral questions here). Here are a couple of good websites:

you can get the same or diffrent, depends on what you like and if your tank is setup for them.

for lps and sps, superglue gel or aqua putty works well.

for softies you can place a rubber band around the coral and rock till it attaches and then remove the rubber band.

You can get the same or different it is up to what you like. You should research the corals before buying them and see if your tank setup can keep them. Are they fresh cuts or already mounted?
