Thinking of connecting my Pi Zero and Zero W to work as one.

Is there an easy way to make this happen? Planning on making the Zero W the main processor and the older Zero a add on processor for better storage and maybe faster processing.

Thinking of using it for Amateur radio in a outside environment but that will come later. For now interested in making the two connected. Any ideas?

No not really... The closest you could get is by using the cluster hat. But this simply hooks up, up to 4 Pi Zeros/W to a main Pi 3 and gives them all network connectivity.

To get them working as "one" you need specialist software that splits up the task in hand to each of the Pi Zeros and then the specialist software on each of the Pi Zeros passes the "completed" task back to the main Pi 3.

TL;DR
No.
