    It's OK but I would use "last" instead of "go on for".

    A: For Two hours. It starts at 10 AM and ends at 12 PM.

    Please check.
    See above. Note that I would write "10am" and "12pm" or "12 noon".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I'd use last in a neutral question- go on for sounds as if you expect to be bored.

    How long does this session last?

    Can we also say "You have already taken two hours of ours how more long is this session going to last?"

    "You have already taken two hours of ours" it seems incorrect could you please correct it? Like we say "You have taken alot of our time" so what is the way to say it with "Two hours"?

    It is about an online session. So is it correct to say "We have been here"?

    No, and not even if we are angry and frustrated. Use Matthew's version.

    You could say that these are two hours of our lives that you will never get back if you want to stress how bored you are.
