My wife and I got our green cards together and are going to file for naturalization. Can we have our interviews scheduled at the same time so that we go the interview together? Will it be in the same room?
No, the naturalization application and process is an individual process. You will be interviewed by yourself. If you file them at the same time it is possible you will be scheduled for the same day but there is not way to guarantee that will happen.
This response does not constitute legal advice, as not all of the facts are known to me. This response does not establish an attorney-client relationship. I recommend you meet with an attorney to discuss your situation.
No, this is an individual process and you will both be interviewed individually. I suggest you contact an immigration attorney online or over the telephone to help you get this process started.
Although you can make the request, they rarely schedule these for the same day.
NO you can not both be in the room together.
If you want someone sitting next to you, hire a lawyer.

No. I don't think so. An application for naturalization is an individual process/application and each one of you will be processed and interviewed separately. If you are represented by an attorney, however, after the scheduling of your interview dates, that attorney could request to reschedule your interview dates and ask the L.A. USCIS district or sub-district office where your interviews will be scheduled, to schedule your interviews on the same day, "back-to-back", so as to enable the attorney to attend each interview with you. USCIS will oblige. I have done this for my clients many times in L.A. and elsewhere.

If you file together (in the same FedEx envelope), USCIS will try to have the appointments scheduled at the same time. The final interview will be separate (for example, one at 8am and one at 8:30am).
