1 domain on 2 different servers configuration?

I know reminds you of something else doesn't it? Seriously though, If I have 1 managed linux dedicated server (CentOS w/ cpanel v.11) and 1 managed windows dedicated server (Windows Server 2003 w/ Plesk 8) and want to the setup automatically through WHMCS under the same domain name (or appearance) how would I accomplish this task?

I've seen few web hosts other both kinds of hosting through 1 website without redirecting to a different domain. If I have to have 2 different domains assigned to 2 different server boxes could I mask/cloak/I don't know the technical word for it so that the url appears as the same domain weather purchasing shared hosting for windows or linux?

Each server just needs a sub-domain of your main domain for your main site, just stick an A-Record pointing sub-domain (hostname) to the servers IP.

You can configure apache to process some specific files an redirect calls to another server when other type of files is called.
