I have a client with Quickbooks networked on 3 computers.  The software has 10 companies shared over the network and they want to add two more companies.  I am unsure of how my partner did this the first time.  How can i shared those other two files from the main computer?

First, QuickBooks (any version) can only open one ledger at one time. Accordingly it will be best to put the ledgers on one computer and not run QuickBooks on that computer. Install the database engine on that computer and set it to share the various ledgers.

Now on any of the other computers, run QuickBooks in multiuser mode but not hosted access. Assuming you have mapped the drive to the ledger computer properly, you should be able to open any leder that is there. Another computer can open a different ledger.

With all these companies, the method above will work best. Hosted access is really for just one company.
