    Can I have two of the same cards but different levels?

    EX -
    If I apply for Sapphire can I then get the Sapphire Preferred too? (as separate cards, not upgrading the card, resulting in 2 cards?)

    And can you get the signup bonuses for each? 10,000 for Sapphire and 40,000 for preferred

    Basically if the basic level card has no annual fee I would like to keep it and get the upgraded card separately. (citi thankyou, amex hilton are other examples too)

    You can often have both and get bonuses for both. This tends to vary a little bit between card issuers and over time as policies change but in general, different levels of the card are considered separate products.
    I have had bonuses for both of the Sapphire card though I didn't hold them at the same time. With Amex, I recently got a regualar free HHonors card (and bonus) despite already having an active HHonors Surpass card.
