i noticed that the zacky vengeance custom guitar has to duncan jb's in it, why would you have 2 of the same pickups at the same time, is it because when you select both pickups on the switch, does it do like double time or something?

It's not that uncommon to have the same pickups in the neck and bridge... almost every ESP LTD comes with the 81/81 combo..

well maybe it's his favorite pickup, and where it's placed does make a difference in the sound, and using two at a time would also make a difference.

Doesnt the place that the pickup is located effect its tone? Like the neck pickup is warmer than the bridge?

I originally had a JB and Jazz in my Schecter C-1 classic but I actually took out the Jazz and put it another JB
it does make quite a difference with the middle selected
a very nice tone imo

Yes, it does make a difference with the position of the PUs. Neck's softer/warmer, Bridge is harder/brighter.
