Should i have 2 DNS instance in both the Primary and child domains.?
For a test i have all these machines connected to 1 switch and same ip range.
Is there something i am doing wrong

No problem with this at all.  There isn't any need for additional DNS servers.

i.e.

2x DNS/DC servers in Primary Domain.  Make both DCs Global Catalogs as well.
1x DC server in Secondary Domain

Note that it would still be worth having a second DC in the child domain, as otherwise it lacks redundancy.

Can the ip's for my Primary and secondary domains be in the same range.?
So you mean that the primary and secoundary domain can just have 1 DNS server

Yes, there is no reason why they can't be in the same subnet/range.  I would recommend 2 DNS servers for redundancy (can be installed on AD servers), but 1 is all that you need for correct function.
