Validity of multiple year visa after passport expiration

Given the visa is very expensive, I am think about getting a 10 year visa since it costs the same as shorter one.

However, my passport is expiring in 2 years. So Is the visa ties to this specific passport and can't be used anymore if the passport expires.

If that is the case, I probably will renew my passport before getting the visa.

No, the visa is still valid beyond the expiry of the passport. You just carry the old passport.

When submitting for the visa, besides an application each(there are two of us). Do we need 2 identical sets of documents for airplane ticket and hotel booking. Both our names are on the airline reservation printout. One of our name is on hotel reservation.

Just want to do it right because it is a trip to get to the consulate.

You need two sets of documents and you need both your names on the hotel reservation. See if you can add that. We used booking.com which allowed you to input the name of all travelers in the room.
