It would be very difficult to find this kind of situation, two black holes or two neutron stars in considerable distance. Maybe this is the reason why they aren't closer together. The weakened force of gravitation perhaps enabled them to move away from each other.

You are correct it is pressure that is reduced on an airplane wing. But the point is pressure is reduced because the air has to travel further over the top of the wing and is unable to exert as much downward action as it speeds along.

Centrifugal force needs a medium to transfer the angular momentum to another object, for humans that is the earth surface, between neutron stars their is just the vacume of space, however I don'tl you what effects of geodesic spacetime dragging in this case.

So then Valhall in reference to my question would gravity seem to get stronger if the earth stopped spinning?
Does centrifugal force counter balance gravity to any extent?

If the earth stopped spinning NOTHING would happen(except get cold on the side not facing the sun).Gravity is based off mass NOT the spinning motion of the earth.
