I want to use a cab that has 16ohms on my 8omh combo but want to make sure the jack for the external speakers has a different transformer then the main so if anything weird happens it is no big deal.

Read the manual。
If it's not labeled then usually it's just in parallel with the other speaker

this would be pretty unusual, in fact i am not even sure it is possible to have 2 separate output transformers for different outputs.

i wouldn't worry about breaking the amp with an 8 ohm to 16 ohm mismatch if you are just trying things out.

edit: you could also look for another output transformer... you should have a power trannie that is smaller (possibly a choke that is real small/smaller than fist size) and an output transformer which is bigger
punk isn't dead, it's always smelled that way.
