Most of the information will be the same in the detail section, with exception of one field.
The page header will contain different text. Should I create a supreport or are there other options?

You will probably need to create a subreport which you should put in the report footer if you want it to be page 2.
You will have to use the report header and footer in the subreport to simulate the page headers.

Subreports do not have page headers and footers.

You will have to suppress the main report page header when in the subreport.

I was just informed that the report should print the data as this

 Page 1,Page 1; Page 2, Page 2.
Two page 1's, but with small changes in information.

Same information as stated :

You can only have 1 detail section so you will probably need to have a subreport for each copy of the page you want.
