Does the microphone angle matter to control the acoustics?

Can imagine. I'm not anywhere near, so no panic.

This is correct. Two cardioids at 0* angle (talking about angle, not spacing) is equal to cardioid. Two cardioids at 180* angle is equal to omni, just like all dual diaphragm mics (u87, 414, 4050, Twins, etc etc).

What matters is the cumulative pattern of your array.

Are we summing to mono?

Two cardioids in AB, pick up twice the incoherent room sound as one cardioid?
