Welcome to SD.SE. It's difficult to make noise cancellation work so adding a second microphone, possibly of a different type to the first, and hoping your computer will cancel noise when combining their outputs seems very unlikely to work. You can get a noise-cancelling (N/C) microphone as a single unit. These can work but you need to be careful using them ...
