Well, the space abilities you get are different than the ones your BOs get. The only way to get 2 High Yield torpedos is to have 2 tactical officers with it both in tactical stations, or a lieutenant tactical officer with it trained for both his ensign and lieutenant skills in a lieutenant tactical station (High Yield Torps is only used by tactical officers). Many abilities, such as High Yield Torpedos do share cooldowns, although the shared cooldown is less than the cooldown for each ability (i.e. you use your first Torp cd, it triggers a cd on both, 15s later the one you didn't use can be used, and then you alternate every 15s). Other abilities, such as Emergency Power abilities, share the full cd with each other and thus there isn't much use to having two of the same ones.
On the ground, your kits can contain the same abilites your BO's have, but they won't share cooldowns. It's up to you if you want to share abilities with your crew or not.
