Do you have to plant two of the same kind of fruit trees for them to produce fruit?

That depends on the species of fruit. The following list should give you the basic pollination needs of most common types of fruit:

Require Cross-Pollination:
Pears (exceptions: Kieffer, Duchess)
Asian Pears (some exceptions)
Japanese Plums
European Plums
Sweet Cherries (exceptions: Stella, Lapins, & Starkrimson)

Peaches (exceptions: J.H. Hale)
Nectarines (mostly)
Sour Cherries
