Electric retractable Landing gear Controller

doing retracts on my S550 got the retracts on order. Do I need a retractable Landing gear Controller between the two legs or can I just join the two into one?

That all depends on the landing gear.

I have a set of Tarot retracts on my 680 Pro, and I use a servo 'Y' lead.

Other brands come with a controller.

One thing you should do is use a separate BEC to power the retracts. If you don't, retracting the gear can (and often does) cause a power drop, shutting the flight controller and radio receiver off. Not a good thing.
