I'm expecting that after playing region 2 - Europe DVDs about 5 or 6 times in my cMP 5.1, the drive will lock to that region. What I'm wondering is if the second drive will automatically lock to the same region, or will I be able to play region 1 - N America DVDs in that one (where the computer is located)?

yeah that should work. also some dvd drives can be flashed to region-free if you look around for the appropriate firmware.

I can play 3 different region's DVDs on my 5,1 at the same time via 3 different optical drives (2 external and 1 internal) that assign to different playing region.

VLC use to play R1/R2 etc without switching the region of the drive. Not sure if that still works, but it's worth a try.
