Dangnabbit...I was wrong. The pistol has burrowed on the far left of the tank, deep inside clown country, while the goby is on the far right.

So back to my original question: will they fine each other, and is there anything I can do to help them (trap the shrimp and move it?)

Aaaaand, we have a pair again, finally

Pistol shrimp and hi fin goby pair - YouTube

The two of them are now inseparable, and the clowns leave them alone, since the shrimp is the "muscle" of the group

Next up, Taotronic lights, then corals

It's definitely worth while. They are a blast in the tank, and every day they've made new burrows somewhere..my kids like to have a scavenger hunt and see who can spot them first

The clowns were a little aggressive at first, but I think the pistol shrimp put them in their place

I just got the pair, they are quite entertaining.

They are a lot of fun to watch. Here's another short video of them:
Pistol shrimp and goby excavating - YouTube

The biggest issue I have is feeding them. My clowns are two pigs, and eat anything before it hits the floor of the tank. I've tried feeding the clowns on the opposite side, but they're quick buggers. I might get a Julian's Thing so that I can deposit the mysis shrimp right in the mouth of the burrow for them and give them a fighting chance.

My little duo keep making new burrows. Lots of hiding places.
