Philodendrons like to be slightly root bound, but you should be able to easily spilt a plant.
You will need to dig up the root ball. You most likely need to cut the plant with a knife. Replant the plants as soon as possible and provide extra water in the first couple weeks of replanting.
Here are a few links.
