I plan on buying this Ram, but if i order 2 sets of it such as instead of getting 2x16 it would be 4x16. Since I would be ordering the 2x16 ones twice. So in the end I would be getting 64gb of Ram

Heres the Ram:

Maybe, maybe not. They are only guaranteed to work as kits as that is how they are tested.
 
If you picked a properly spec'ed set of RAM and have an Intel system it will more than likely work. By work, I mean probably boot up and may or may not run at it's advertised speeds and latency.
If it's a Ryzen system I would be less sure and in particular would check QVL, etc.

Even if the ram passed QVL, there will be problems as stated above if the part # are not exactly the same. (Example: I have Corsair Vengeance LPX 2X8 GB 3200 ram. On the backside of the packaging there is a small box which reads, "Product may very slightly from those pictured above. Part #48-009085 rev AC." The chips on the ram modules must be matched to the very same lot - or there will be serious problems, which is why USAFRet recommended the 4X set. Best advice that I have seen with regard to your question so far which is why I clicked like.
