for the Arch ditro do I share boot and other folders with Ubuntu?
You don't ... you can (reasonably safely) share swap, /home and /tmp
(if those are separate partitions in your installation). That aside
you shouldn't try to mix them.

P.S.: I'd like to suggest that you overhaul that post
of yours in regards to spelling and grammar ;}
