Hi Dan-92, and welcome TSG.

The adapters in your first and third links will allow you to show the exact same screen information at the same resolution on two monitors. The MHP DVI-I Splitter would not work for you.

No, there is no multi-display mode support of any kind with a single VGA output. The best that you can do is to use of the cables to split the exact same video and sync signals between two monitors. Both monitors would be showing the exact same thing.

You would need to add a suitable video controller card with dual monitor outputs to get two monitors to display different things at the same time.

Worth noting, the video cards do not have to be identical or even the same slot type..one can be adp and the other pci for example but you would need two video outs to span...additionaly UltraMon has been a must have util for me to manage "my" dual displays as windows isn't exacly feature laden in that regard
