EASY way to change from 1 to 2 sink vanity?

Wanting to toss my old single-sink bathroom vanity top and replace with a nice used dual sink top. Here is pic of current plumbing (currently not completely hooked up).

I am thinking to just buy splitters for drain as well as supply lines (see pics) Name:  1-4 Turn Dual Outlet.jpg

I would of course need to resize pvc as necessary. Youtube vids show people using blowtorches, welders, cutting holes all over tarnation, etc. But it seems pretty simple to me. Am I oversimplifying or missing something? Is it OK for them to share one P-Trap? One sink will be near plumbing fixtures below, other will be to the side. Thanks!!!!

Each sink should have it's own trap, but both traps empty into the same drain stub. It's not like a double kitchen sink that share one trap. I may be wrong. The experts will be here shortly.

Im not the expert, but imo the proper way to do it is to open the wall up behind the vanity (remove drywall) and put in a double sanitary tee inside the wall. (Its like a 4 way fitting) Drill through studs as needed and stub out directly behind your proposed sink locations.
