First, I assume I need a splitter that splits 1st line and 2nd line? Then I take my second line and plug it into the wall plug on the HUB. Does it make sense?
Second question, how do I transfer my 2nd landline phone number to ooma's 1st line since I already signed up for new ooma number. Once the porting process completes, what happens to the original ooma number, does it go away and my ooma's account is reassigned(including my lounge ID) to the new number.
If you just want 2 phone numbers in different rooms, then assign one to the scout. Either way, the wall port on the hub must be connected to the wall port on the scout.
It seems that I should be able to use one of the line splitters/switches that splits 1st and 2nd line and connect 2nd line to ooma's HUB.
You might also want to consider using one of these two line wall plates at the jack where your hub will be installed instead of using a splitter. Wire the white/blue pairs to the red/green wires on the first jack, the white/orange pairs to the red/green of the second jack. Very clean looking and no pesky adapters to break in the future.

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
Depending on that, you should be able to connect the phone port on your ooma hub to the wall jack on the 2nd line of your house wiring. If you have 2 port wall jacks you can just use the 2nd jack, otherwise you may be able to use a line1/line2 splitter connected to the jack. You'll need to disconnect the 2nd landline from the demarcation box on the outside of your house. See here for more info:
As to your 2nd question, porting your 2nd landline number to ooma will cause that number to replace your temporary ooma number.
