You don’t need that many mics, as you’ve stated in your post.
I’d do what sargehero said and use a dynamic mic for the interviewer and boom mic for the interviewee, if the interviewer’s supposed to be louder. Or, mic the interviewer with lav, and the interviewee with boom mic.
If there’s outside noise, use lav on both.
