    I'm not sure about #1, but for #2 "We're two of a kind."

    Hope that helps.

    I'm a little confused about your use of "alliance" and then "against each other" but I think you may want a "feud."

    So the two are united against a third?
    I think your phrase "long-standing alliance" is a good one.
