Both.
The 4.5A limit is due to the maximum current provided by the SATA connection. So ... each PWM repeater has the same limit (assuming that it's powered by SATA; if by the older molex-style, it's 5.5A).

not sure what the voltage of the fans are, going to be having 10 120mm LL fans and 6 120mm QL fans, either way it dont seem like there is enough in stock to order 5 of the pwm repeaters

Fan motors are all standard 12V.
All of the PWM repeaters will also use the standard 12V.

And ... SATA will provide 4.5A on the 12V rail.

https://www.amazon.com/DEEPCOOL-FH-1...14&sr=8-2&th=1

was only pwm repeater hubs i could find on amazon, either a 10 fan or 4

Option 1: splitter would run the 2 rgb hubs in channel 1 and then could i put a 3rd hub on channel 2 for the 6 QL fans?

Option 2: Either way im sitting on 2 commander pro units (1 still new in box unopened) and prob have about 10 rgb hubs and prob just as many lighting node pros. if i use both commander pros can hook the 10 regular LL fans into the RGB channels 1 and 2 and then put the 6 QL fans into channel 1 of the 2nd commander pro with nothing in channel 2. In this setup would having 6 QL fans on channel 1 make channel 2 unable to be used?

If i went with option 2 i would really only need 2 of the corsair PWM repeaters to be able to power the 16 fans i plan on using.
