Q:

Can two objects in exactly the same orbit, have different velocities?

A:

No, two objects in the exact same orbit cannot have different velocities. An orbit is the path of an object going around another object in space. The orbiting object is called a satellite. Satellites in the exact same orbit must have the same height, velocity and path around the Earth.
