The only way they can be named the same is to put them in different locations.  You can't duplicate file names.
They would be able to load both PST files if configured properly.
Do you want to share a mailbox?  If so, use the same PST file for both users.

No, it is "community PC" there are 3 people that are using the PC each with different profiles. It just happened that 2 users named a personal PST the same name and they see each other email that they place in the folder.

They are using the same PST.  If they need to be different create a new one for one of the users and the other user can keep the old one.
