I currently have 4GB (2x2GB) of dual-channel RAM. On the remaining two DIMM slots on my motherboard, would I be able to install 8GB (2x4GB) of dual-channel RAM without creating problems? Same speed of course just different memory size.

Yeah you can do that. The only thing you need to worry about is if your motherboard will be able to handle that much memory. For example, I recently purchased a new motherboard and I can only have 32gb RAM max. For older computers it would be lower. But yeah, you're allowed to have different sizes in at the same time
