The first would be better with "can" instead of "could".
The second is fine,
What's the difference between saying:
She's too wild for me. She needs a man who could tame her.
She's too wild for me. She needs a man who would be able to tame her.
Are both the similar or the same?

Do they mean the same thing or are they similar?
I am not a teacher.
Just as 'can' is better than 'could' in the first one, I would say, 'She needs a man who's able to tame her' in the second sentence.
If you make those changes, they will mean the same.
