Is there a way to have two separate gnumeric windows
of the same or different spreadsheets simultaneously
in unix-based systems?

You can certainly have different spreadsheets open at the same time.
(There are some issues with Modality of dialogs which might cause some
irritation thought).

Are you thinking of having something like the functionality in emacs
where you can be accessing the same buffer in two different frames (Even
on 2 different X displays)?

No. I want to work with two different spreadsheets at the same time.
I now understand how to do this.

This would be pretty neat. Currently you 
need to use split view to freeze one section while you are scrolling
around other parts of the sheet. I am not sure how much I would use
multiple windows for one sheet, but I am sure it would be very useful to
some people. EG: Manipulating a multi sheet workbook on a dual head
display. You could have one sheet selected on one display head, and be
referring to it while entering a formula on a different sheet in the
same workbook on a different window on the other display head.

Is this worth an enhancement request bug on bugzilla?

Not to me right now since I am not trying to do that.
(I have a 21" monitor so I have lots of screen space)
 Maybe later.
