If I was to duplicate my monitor with another, will I lose frame rate when I play games?

By duplicating, I mean going into display settings, and duplicating – not extending – Monitor 1 on Monitor 2.

No. Duplicating has no effect on the process of generating the data to be displayed in the frames, so its speed is not affected.
