Is it possible to have an encoder split across 2 Arduino modules? For instance, have the "-" encoder pin connected to pin #13 of Arduino A and the "+" encoder pin connected to pin #44 of Arduino B?

In short words.... NO. A Encoder is internal ONE Device and need a A and a B Line to emulate the "GreyCode" of the Encoder.
Both Lines MUST be on same Arduino MEGA cause the calculation of the code is done one he Ardunino.... Not on Mobiflight . So device MUST be on one board.

If you realy get in trouble here simply transfer a 1 pin device ( Button, Led and so on) to a other Arduino Mega...... If you still need 2 Boards its recommend to split the devices regulary over the 2 baords.... So your for example 53 Pins in use are split maby 26/27 over two megas..... Instead a 52/1 Setup !
Good Luck !
