How to handle split screen shots?

I got a call from somebody who wants me to grade a project. He explained that during editing a lot of split screen stuff is being done. It seems they had some performance problems and had to divide the screen, taking each side from a different take of the same shot. But the split needs to be seamless as it's supposed to be the same take. As I understood it I think it's like a two-shot where they use the performance of the actor on the right from a different take than the one on the left, but need to look like it's the same take.
There seems to be quite a few of these types of shots.

I was asked about the best way to handle that. I'm not quite sure myself as I have not encountered this yet.

Do these shots have to be rendered as a visual effect first, meaning having the two shots composited and reimported in the editor prior to the export of an AAF? Or would the AAF carry the necessary info and the rest could be done in Resolve? There doesn't seem to be really any complex compositing going on.
