    I think the two sheets together is an unworkable idea with no practical purpose. The same effect OP is looking for can be realized in Photoshop by other means.

    Some is coated with emulsion on two sides, some on one side. I found the sharpness (alt. process contact prints) of the two-sided to be not acceptable. The top emulsion is too far from the sensitized paper to be sharp.

    If you are already going into Photoshop, why not simply shoot a color negative, load the scan into Photoshop, create a layer copy of the color image and convert that to B&W? This gives you ultimate control including emulating filters and then
    you can use either blend modes, opacity, or layer masks to get the effect you're after.

    Cheers,

    Just developed a load of Fp4 8x10 with Jobo 3005. One of holders had two sheets of film loaded on one side. The result is that the top sheet is perfectly fine and the bottom sheet is about 2 stops underexposed.

    You can eliminate back side emulsion
    Less density (more exposure needed) but more sharpness.
