I am trying to figure out why the 2N3055 are in series and not parallel
If the 2N3055 are pulling less than 10 amps yes.
If the 2N3055 are pulling more than 10 amps no.
if you connect 2 MJ3001 in parallel for each 2N3055 yes.

A cursory look at the datasheet will show you that a 2n3055 is rated at 15A, the MJ3001 is rated at only 10A, so no, you can't replace one with the other.
