as long as you make sure all the data they need (i.e. changing and
state information) is on shared storage (DRBD), and the same
services are configured the same on both boxes, then you no longer
need to reconfigure.

> 2. Can i implement DRDB and OpenMosix concurrently?

google for DRBD and OpenMosix and check out the 500+ hits...
maybe some of the people implementing/using it are reading this
here, too.  most likely they are on some openmosix list though.
