It's very simple.
Re: Two games in one week:
Week 1 becomes Week 1A, Week 2 becomes Week 1B, just a matter of symantics.
Re: 16 weeks of divisional play and 6 weeks of interleague
The more complicated you make your scheduling requirements, the more complicated the model gets. It simply involves having another (what I call) scheduling matrix. One for divisional play, one for interleague. You can choose which weeks you want to have set aside for your interleague, then use that scheduling matrix for those weeks.
I use to do this stuff with a pencil and piece of paper as a little kid. Fun stuff and very simple when you understand the concept.
Combinatorics is a very fascinating field.
