Tying 1 toilet to existing toilet drainline

Here's my deal...
I have an older home, 1950, raised off the ground by 2 feet. I have a toilet line that goes straight down from toilet to sewer. I am installing a 2nd toilet 5 feet away and want to drain this one into the existing line. If I add a Yee Tee and a vent stack (none present) will I get flow and not suck the water out of the existing one??
Thanks in advance

Would the vent be best placed closest to the distant toilet or should I place a vent where the distant toilet ties into the existing toilet line?

Plumbing sure is an interesting creature.
Air sure helps poop move! Shame it doesn't work as well in Washington!!
