Can one EZ-Xtend be cut in half and used for two smaller pieces of canvas? If so, what else do I need to purchase?

No, one ez-xtend can not be cut in half and used twice.
The reason for this, is because any separating zipper has a retaining box on one side and a pin on the other side. This mating of the two halves is the way you begin the zipping process. An ez-xtend has both the retaining box and pin on the single unit zipper. With this you can zip it into another zipper. Once you use it, the part you cut off no longer has the pin and box so it can't be zipped in.

Everything you will need comes with the zipper (a stainless steel zipper stop, a piece of no fray tape and directions).
