how about twin linking for giving remote controlled weapon systems secondary weapons?

That's an easy one. You just need to hook 2 servo motors to the trigger mechanism. Use a selector switch to change control between the two weapons. Press a button, the servo pressed the trigger.

and how about installing that in Humvees where it's weapons are: M2 Browning machine gun twin linked with Grenade Machine Gun

It is theoretically possible. It would be like installing a twin Browning M2 mount.

However, a twin mount is usually used on ships in a swivel mount which requires a less than 180-degree firing area.

A modern humvee mount is a circular track allowing the weapon to spin 360-degrees to fire from any direction. With a twin mount, the weight would make moving the weapon a little bit harder. Also the weapons would be offset from center, meaning firing the weapons would be awkward.

But if if were a remote controlled weapon system, you wouldn't have these issues. Slap it on a Cougar MRAP and you would be good to go.

Why stop at a dual mount? Back in WWII, they had a neat piece called the Maxson M45 Quad Mount. Four M2HBs on either a trailer or an M3 Halftrack. Called it the Krautmower. Personally, I prefer the Vietnam-era gun truck. They used the M45 on occasion, but instead of a halftrack they stuck them in the pan of a deuce-and-a-half truck or a five-ton depending. Steel plating bolted to the outside, and anything from a pair of M60s to a minigun in the back. Occasionally a grenadier with an M79 as well. Plus they had awesome names.

but the problems is: why US Military don't bother to use Remote-Controlled Weapon system that uses both M2 Browning and MK19 at once?

Twin linking the m2 browning and the mk 19 would not provide you with what you desire without alot of computing power and servo mechanisms behind it. Otherwise your Point Of Impact would be nowhere near the same, meaning you'd have to aim either one or the other and fire them individually thereby destroying the utility of a twin linked setup.

In addition to this the tactical uses of the two weapons are also vastly different. What you'd use a mk 19 on you wouldn't necessarily want or need to use a mk 19 on too.

Don't get me wrong I get what you're going for but you wouldn't get what you're looking for out of the combination as you've laid it out.
