My PC has two NICs (ethernet ports) each 1Gbps. I have combined them in Windows using PowerShell NetSwitchTeam into one (running 2Gbps). I see the feature switch control "Bonding/ Link aggregation". I've enabled that and plugged each ethernet cable into port 1 and port 2 on the router but I see the following in the log file. I am trying to run these combined effeciently. Do I have this setup correctly or is this not the intended purpose?

You're wasting your time. First this option is flaky on home routers and second you are not getting 2Gbps with any single connection. This is not how link aggregation works. If you want 2.5GbE LAN you need 2.5GbE switch and devices with 2.5GbE NICs connected to it.
