Lightroom Classic can only have one Catalog synced to Adobe Creative Cloud at any point in time.

You can store your Catalog and original image files on an external drive. Exit LrC on your primary laptop then connect the external drive and boot LrC on the secondary laptop.

LrC requires access to both the Catalog and Original images.

The Catalog file cannot be connected on a network drive.

Best to use Lightroom (Desktop app) on the secondary laptop and that can sync with LrC. You can perform edits to the smart previews in the Creative Cloud storage and it will sync back to LrC.

There is no sync between LrC on different computers.

 

Your best option is to put the LrC catalog on an external drive, and move it between computers.
