Hi and to Talk Budgies!

The first advice I would offer you is to get as big a cage as you can afford and have room for. Whether you have one budgie or two -- the bigger the cage the better.
The very minimum recommended size for two budgies is 30"x18"x18" such as this one:
Amazon.com : Prevue Pet Products Flight Cage, White : Bird Cage : Pet Supplies Amazon.com : Prevue Pet Products Flight Cage, White : Bird Cage : Pet Supplies
Getting a cage like this would be great - cage dimensions are: 32"x19"x37"
Amazon.com: Large Wrought Iron Flight Canary Parakeet Cockatiel Lovebird Finch Cage With Removable Stand #15 Black Bird Cage, 32-Inc: Pet Supplies Amazon.com: Large Wrought Iron Flight Canary Parakeet Cockatiel Lovebird Finch Cage With Removable Stand #15 Black Bird Cage, 32-Inc: Pet Supplies
This would give the two room to get away from one another and still be in the same cage.

Secondly, I would suggest you provide natural branch perches, toys to keep the birds active and stimulated and separate food and water dishes for each of them. They should have a cuttle bone and mineral block as well. Swings are a favorite with all of my birds! Take a look at this link for excellent suggestions:
Essentials to a Great Cage-Talk Budgies Forums

The behavior of head bobbing and regurgitating to one another is common in both genders of budgies. It isn't indicative of only males.

Another option is to have two cages right next to one another with natural perches and toys. In that way the two could interact through the safety of the bars and keep one another company. I doubt they would make any more noise than if they were housed together if the cages are in close proximety.
