You definitely need 2 programmed keys.

I have not heard/read anywhere about how to program new keys, if you only have one.

Here's the procedure I know about.
1) good key - insert - turn to "on" for 1 second ("on", not "start") - remove
2) second good key - insert - turn to "on" for 1 second - remove
3) new key - insert - turn to start car
4) done.

Can you fake it out by using the first key twice.
Real good question, but I doubt it would work.
According to everything I've seen, if you only have one key,
only the Dealer or a Locksmith (with the proper code reader) will be able to program the key.

I'd try out your theory, but my wife would
me if I screwed up her Escape keys.

I do know folks have bought the PATS keys from Ebay for substantially less than the dealer.
Pardon the Escape forums, but heh, you should be able to garner the pertinent information.
