I JUST recently discovered that there isn't an iFixit teardown for either the 2020 two-port (8th Gen) or four-port (10th Gen) 13" MacBook Pro. There is one for the 2020 MacBook Air and there's definitely one for the 16" MacBook Pro. What gives? Does anyone else find this odd?

I'm trying to remember the non obvious differences. Some are two port has only one fan, different speakers and slower wifi than 4 port.

I'm aware of the one fan, different speakers, and any other difference specific to the 10th Gen CPUs (like graphics). WiFi, I haven't heard about. I know that neither 13" model has WiFi 6/802.11ax. What differences are there with WiFi?

Two port models have always been 2x2 streams (not updated for 2020) instead of 3x3, so you will get a 50% boost with the four port model.
