Is there a way ensure NT8 between 2 PCs are completely synced? Everything meaning: Indicators, Workspaces, Templates, Settings/Configurations, etc.

I use Dropbox. Perhaps, there's a way to put settings, templates and Workplaces files on dropbox and import/export everytime? or a better process?

only if you copy / paste the NT file/folder every time you want to access it somewhere else. If you're talking real time, like TOS or something like that, the answer is no. NT is stored locally, therefore it's up to you to transfer your files to your laptop when you would like to use it there.

If you're referring to the NT application itself from your drop box, I am not sure of this. I have not tried it, but let us know how that goes!

You can check syncthing, but you may have to thing a bit if you don't have a master/slave configuration.

I use a private Subversion server to commit and checkout strategy and indicator source code files between different computers. I have the following folders synched and managed via SVN

C:\Users\Scott\Documents\NinjaTrader 8\bin\Custom\Strategies
C:\Users\Scott\Documents\NinjaTrader 8\bin\Custom\Indicators

Plus I get all of the other benefits of source/version control too

Donít the indicators have to be imported? Is it a matter of just syncing the folders to the same path?

Not if they don't depend on references to external DLLs or other indicators. If I do have dependencies on other indicators I include them in there as well. The "Import" feature is a more user-friendly way of getting an indicator up and running than dealing with folders and dependencies, but as an NT developer I need to manage those technical details anyways.
