and leave the one on the second floor alone? or is it more complicated than that?

Just disconnect the one upstairs and install one downstairs. If you install it on the same wall and stud, you can just clip the exisitng wire and use it for the new thermostat. It's simple to do.

So if I ask an HVAC technician to install new wiring he doesn't have to come up stairs to the 2nd floor? He just has to install new wiring from the basement where the house electric panel is and the boiler is?

We moved ours from one room to another, we just made a hole in the wall and extended the wire to the new spot.

That's correct. THey can just disconnect the existing wiring from the block and add new. But as I said, less expensive and less work if you're able to just use the existing wiring.

Either will work fine, as long as you don't try wiring both thermostats at the same time.

We got rid of the first one. Usually you have one. Unless you want 2 heating zones then you need another whole system for the other floor.
