I have to get two side by side partial dentures, two upper teeth each I believe.

Could someone explain how they stay in place? Do they clip on and stay in place like that? Are they made out of metal, can you seel clips?

Is it possible for them to fall out? I'm nervous to get them in case they do.

By side by side I mean two on the left upper side and two on the right upper side.

You mean you need one partial denture to replace 4 teeth? Anything else is a bit bizarre.
There are several different types of partial with different ways of being retained. Try reading this:
