2 Lights & 3 switches, doesn't look right
Do you know how the wires go between the lights and switches and what colors they are?
If you have a 4 way switch setup, it is possible to use two 3-way switches in place of one 4-way switch.
But it would be awkward. If you did not flip the pair of 3-ways in the 4-way location correctly, then the other locations woul dnot be able to control the light.
A 3-way switch can be used as an ordinary (single location) switch, with one of the traveler terminals left empty.
Occasionally you will run into a master-slave setup, where two switches are in line and both have to be on for the light to be on. (One master switch might control more than one slave subcircuit.) Or a shared light where both switches have to be off for the light to be off.
The disadvantages of crab apple trees. In summer, the apples are too sour to pick and eat. In winter the birds come and leave dropping all over the place.
