I purchased a smart bulb that will only connect to 2.4ghz network- how do I get my Telus Actiontec modem to manually switch from 5ghz to 2.4 so I can connect bulb?

Disable SmartSteering in the wifi settings on the Actiontec. That will create two networks. One 2.4 and one 5GHz.

Do the network passwords remain the same if I split two networks 2.4 and 5

You can set a password for each. You can have them the same if you like. Just use slightly different network names so you can tell which is the 2.4 vs 5.
