I believe that once the OS is installed on a given machine the OS is married to the motherboard and can't be used again on a different motherboard. I recommend purchasing an OS from a reputable source linked on this site. Usually you can get Win 10 64 bit for around $90.

No. Not for the OEM versions of Windows.
Microsoft OEM Software Licensing: Rules & Restrictions:

OEM Software may NOT be transferred to another machine. Even if the original laptop, PC or Server is no longer in use, or if the software is removed from the original hardware, OEM licenses are tied to the device on which the software is first installed...

... so i can use it with both computers ...

No.
Only exception would be those with volume licensing contract.
