if they are seeing each other through the divider, you could put a thick plant or decoration on each side so they cant see each other. if not, get an opaque divider

and that will reduce the stress a bit.

how big is the tank?
a blocking plant might not fit

they will get stressed which is bad for their health, what size is the tank? and a plant or two (depending on tank size) will work great, they love hiding in plants and its ok for them to see each other and flare a bit but that much will just wear them down.

Yes, this is stressful for them. Those dividers are also not fool proof, so I'd be careful. I've seen bettas jump OVER dividers to get at the betta next to them and fight them.

Separation would be the safest option here.
