when hot glue gets wet, it separates from whatever it is bonding :)
I used some on a decorations and the next day all the rocks had fallen off.
Your bettas would probably get through and attack each other

I recommend getting another kritter keeper. They're not too pricey on amazon! but if you do, I DEFINITELY think you should double up on them and make a small area in the middle as a barrier. That's what I have, in a ten gallon tank, and tonight one of my boys got through three times! It's never happened before so I have him in a mini tank while I figure out where he's getting through. If it weren't for the barrier space, my other fish would be a goner! The one that got through is an aggressive little fishy

And as for the hot glue issue, I would just use aquarium sealant

I would NOT put any other living creature in a 1.5gallon divided critter keeper with the bettas. It's already the smallest tank a betta can happily live in (with lots of maintenance). Putting any other living being in that tank would cause either high levels of ammonia, or stress the betta out for not having enough room for himself.
"A few shrimp" may not put out a lot of ammonia, but they would take up room in the already small tank and likely cause the betta to be stressed out or act out in aggression. The snail and/or frogs would put out way too much ammonia in the small tank and would likely end up harming all inhabitants.

Even if you kept a tank for each betta, I personally would not put anything else alive in that tank. If it looks empty, just fill it up with silk plants and some decoration. That's what I've done with my 3 gallon tanks and my bettas love having the whole 3 gallons to themselves.
