"Being clueless about the variations on the HD theme, is HD2 the same or lower quality [bitrate] than HD1?  Or will that vary depending on the station [WGBH in this case]?"

What most HD stations appear to be doing is keeping the HD1 (simulcasting the analog) at the highest bitrate and running the secondaries at lower bitrates...for example, 48kbps for HD1 and 24kbps for HD2, 3, etc.  But, bottom line, it is up to the station how the data stream is subdivided.
