I am no expert on such matters, but I don't think it is possible
The apps on the iPad you bought are still tied to the iTunes account of the seller
You purchased the iPad, not the apps

I am sure someone will correct my thinking if I am off base though

Say it is your wifes ipad.

On her pc, log her out and you in, authorize your account.
Download the prepurchased apps she wants.
log out and log her back in, plug in her ipad and sync apps...

Is there a limit to how many times you can de-authorize an account and is there a way you can see all the accounts that are authorized to the computer?

The apps are not yours just because they were on an iPad which you bought. You own the iPad but not the apps.

All your apps will transfer across from your different accounts but you will need to login each time to each different account to pull them down or update the apps.

There's no way to keep those apps anywhere but on the device. They're forever tied to the original purchaser's account - and that holds true for updates as well.

1) Plug in whatever device you want to back up the apps from
2) Right-click your device icon in iTunes and select the option to transfer you purchased apps to iTunes
3) Plug in any other devices you want to get the apps from and repeat the process
4) Plug in the device you want to transfer the apps to from iTunes
5) Highlight your device's icon so that on the right side it shows the Restore and Check for update options.
6) On the top there are tabs that should say "info" "apps" etc...
7) Click the Apps icon and then in the screen below select to sync apps. This will delete apps from your device but you can now sync the apps you transferred to iTunes to your new device

Please note that any apps you purchased will not work without the originating Apple ID you bought them from so you will have to use the same Apple ID in your new iPad.
