This is pretty open ended, you'll have to explain a little more than this.

1. Open ports for connecting from Internet to inside ?

2. Open ports from connecting from inside to Internet ?

I mean, explain so that we can understand and have a solution that doesn't break anything.

Post your configuration and mention the ips to which you want this to be done.

1. You need to mention the inside ip address of sql server

2. You need to mention the outside ip (Public ip) address of the sql server

and same for the other sql server too.

Mask off the first 2 octects of your public ip for security. Remove all passwords.'
