I have two plants and they have little shoots that come up around the bottoms. Can these be harvested and replanted as new plants? Also, how are they cut away from the main plant?

This article should help you. The section on the pups and removing them is what you need: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/sago-palm/prune-sago-palm.htm
I have seen sagos with this "branching". It is the seed that has fallen down into the crevices of the trimmed lower fronds. I have seen very old (and VERY expisive) sagos with several "branches" like this. If you can gently remove the new growth, before the roots burrow into the parent trunk, I would think they can grow on their own, provided they get the correct soil mix and fertilizing.
