Home theater audio sourcing

Another question that has no place here, hoping someone has some experience in home audio as well here.

I was thinking of getting a gaming chair in the near future. Many of them are equipped with 2.1 systems in them and they usually have RCA inputs (and sometimes outputs) I'm looking at getting a Gamepod 1.5 which does not have outputs (which is alright, because that would be a hell of a mess anyways)

What I want to know is: I'm assuming that how the manufacturer intends you on using it is just hooking up the RCAs into the chair and being happy with that. Me on the other hand, I want not only sound to be routed into the chairs speakers, but into a 5.1 surround sound as well. Is there any means of achieving this?

Is there such a thing as a splitter that has a female white/red on one end then splits into 2 sets of male red/whites at the other? If anyone knows of one, please source.
Or is there a possibility that when running and HDMI cable from an Xbox360 into home audio receiver that I could not only source the audio to play over the surround sound and through a male red/white to male red/white for the chair to play simultaneously. (Basically asking if receivers are smart enough to play 2 different audio out sources at the same time)

Yes Just get a (pre)amplifier/receiver with enough controls to allow the signals to be routed as desired. Make sure that you have the ability to individually adjust the levels of each output to balance the sound.
