I have five Celestial Pearl Danios in a ten gallon already, and my sister has decided to get out of the hobby, so I'm looking to find a home for her two sparkling gouramis. Would putting one or both of them with the danios be a viable solution in this size tank?

Get a bigger tank like 30 gallons. then split those gourmis. they could fight. but if your tank is big enough. they wont fight.

I believe sparklers dont fight amongst themselves, they do better in groups though so a larger tank may still be in order.

The two sparkling gourami should be fine in a well-planted 10g. If both are males, they will defend their respective territories, but this should not normally be trouble if there are enough plants to break up the tank.

The CPD might be targetted if one or both of the gourami is male.
