Going by the kit you've got, you've got sufficient funds to just try it, and see if it does or not. Look forward to your observations. In my experience, the answer is no. In fact, the best option is no crossover and just go full-range.

Unlikely that you are going to notice a difference. There is potentially a small benefit in bi-amp a passive x-over. One amp for LF and one amp for MF/HF.

Bi-wire is still using a single amp for LF and MF/HF

 

It is just a marketing gadget/naming. If you read the info on your amp, it isn't even mentioned in their sales pitch.

Weeeelll - that's if you're happy listening to a max bandwidth of 100Hz to 10kHz.  :)

If you used both the A+B terminals at the amp you will get worse sound.

 

If you used only 1 set of terminals (either A only or B only) and use 2 runs of the same speaker cables from that 1 set of terminal to connect to the speakers' upper frequency input and lower frequency input you will get much improved sound. 

 

Running 2 sets of amplifier may get you slightly greater dynamic power, but you may run into 2 issues:

 

1)  If the 2 amps are not fed directly from the wall mains, but from a distributor, there might be impediments to speed of the current flow, and unequal dynamics/sound quality from ac receptacle to receptacle.

 

2)  the 2 amps placed next to each other will exert a detrimental magnetic field interference over each other - affecting soundstaging, dynamics and timbre correctness.

To answer this question in "aussie lingo"... Won't make one iota of difference to the sound.
