Your two objects, elementOne and elementTwo, would be related using lookup fields. For elementOne, it would be a lookup to elementOne (this is legal), and for elementTwo, it would have a lookup to elementOne as well. Depending on which API you decide to use (likely the sobject tree API or the nested records API), you would format your JSON according to the documentation, and the records would be inserted/updated appropriately.
