How do I get two dupes to activate this machine? I've managed to make dupes unearth the machine on two planets but I'm not sure on activation.

They come in pairs. The second one of a pair is at an asteroid. From the starting planetoid the incoming one of these seems to come from the asteroid you can reach with the teleporter. My guess would be that these machines form a full circle over all asteroids, hop-by-hop.

They're on both asteroids and come in pairs, my question is how to activate both at once. Do I need two researchers or operators? Do I need a particular cable to attach them?

You click on it and hit the "Activate" button, and a dupe will come along to activate it

I clicked activate on both and no dupes arrived to either one on either asteroid.

when in doubt check the "errands" tab of an object

You have to have a dupe there that can reach it. You can only tell after activation whether both sides have been activated, because you cannot tell which ones are paired. 

It does not have a settable priority, but the hidden one seems to be high. If it does not work you can always set the doors to "in only" and manually instruct a dupe to go there.

You need to send a dupe to another asteroid where the other end of the pipe is located.

Yes. Before that you get (in red) "Activation:1/2". So you can check that one side is activated.

That's why I'm confused. I unearth four of them in total and I wasn't sure how to get a dupe to open.

Made a new planet. How do I connect them once I activate? Is there a particular pipe I need to use?

Every warp device has 3 ports for liquid, gas and conveyor transportation. So for example you want to warp water from second asteroid to the first one, looking for Warp input on the second asteroid and connect liquid pipe to it, then do the same with Warp output on the first asteroid
