I need to create an array of two objects, one object will be an instance and the other object will be the occurance of that instance. I forget how to send these two objects of different types into the array.

Do you mean that one will be the name of the class and the other will be an object of that class?
Object [][]myArray = new Object[][];
Then you can do
WhateverClass myObj = new WhateverClass();
myArray[0][0] = "WhateverClassName";
myArray[0][1] = myObj;
