COMMENTS
The complementary sequences a() and b() are uniquely determined by the titular equation and initial values. See A294414 for a guide to related sequences.
Conjecture: a(n)/a(n-1) -> (1 + sqrt(5))/2, the golden ratio.

EXAMPLE
a(0) = 1, a(1) = 3, b(0) = 2, b(1) = 4, so that
a(2) = a(1) + a(0) + b(1) + b(0) - 2 = 8
Complement: (b(n)) = (2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14,...)
MATHEMATICA
mex := First[Complement[Range[1, Max[#1] + 1], #1]] &;
a[0] = 1; a[1] = 3; b[0] = 2; b[1] = 4;
a[n_] := a[n] = a[n - 1] + a[n - 2] + b[n - 1] + b[n - 2] - n;
b[n_] := b[n] = mex[Flatten[Table[Join[{a[n]}, {a[i], b[i]}], {i, 0, n - 1}]]];
Table[a[n], {n, 0, 40}] (* A294417 *)
Table[b[n], {n, 0, 10}]
