Can we create more than 2 page layouts for any objects in professional edition? The doc says that it's limited to 2 page layouts per object, but it's not and I can create more than 2 page layouts. Can anyone help me on this?

Yes we can
Salesforce recommends creating NO more than 200 page layouts. While there is no limit, organizations may have difficulty managing their page layouts if they exceed 200. I don't know were you found that information but certainly that's not correct.
Page layout plays an important role when dealing with record types on various records. You can assign different page layouts to different record types on a single object.
