comment How to add dimmer to “one switch controls another switch” configuration
When I initially asked the question, I didn't know that my original configuration wasn't a best practice and in most cases a mistake.

I am finding that as a STEP 0 to my dimmer installation, I need to resolve the problem of my switch configuration. My research has led me to the conclusion that my initial 3-way switch configuration was wrong.

Switch 1 and Switch 2 are the exact same hardware and both have 4 wires connected to each.

Not sure if you can derive the wiring from this, but here is what the original situation was. Switch 1 would turn the light on and off but only if Switch 2 was in it's ON state. I believe I have a few switches that behave like this, such as the hallway switches when going up a level in my house.
