We have flown tons of time but this is the first time I will be fkying with my own booster seat bases. Two of them. And we have a stop with a two hr layover.

Best way to travel with them? As checked luggage? How did you protect them?

I know they have special roll carrying cases.

Check them at the gate.

You should be able to check them at the gate, but if they are small enough to fit in carry on luggage I'd probably just put them in that so they are easy to get to and not tossed around.

I would check them at the gate.

I have no idea. I have never been on a plane with my children in tow before.

High back or backless? High back I would check at the gate. I just flew with a backless and put it in the overhead bin.

Backless boosters don't need that much protection as their structure isn't really adding to the safety of them the way a 5-point harness is. I would be comfortable throwing them in a bag together and checking them through with the rest of the luggage, personally (most airlines will do that for free).

If you are very concerned about them and don't mind lugging them through the airport, then I'd gate check them. But they may just check them through anyway if you do that. 

I wouldn't carry them on to the plane unless you are sure they will fit under the seats because it's a bit inconsiderate IMO. Most flights I have been on have been pressed for overhead storage, so I try to minimize carry-ons to things that I truly need to carry on.
