I am searching for an IDE with Spyder that works with both ArcGIS Pro and ArcMap.

I did found a suggested answer Using spyder as Python IDE with ArcGIS Pro?, but would like to know if any more possibility exists.

Ideally, something like PyCharm does where you can easily switch between the two Python interpreters but if not then a separate IDE with Spyder for ArcMap (64-bit geoprocessing, Python 2.7).

Are there any IDEs or configurations that can do this?

    What do you mean "an IDE with Spyder"? Only Spyder IDE comes with "Spyder". Is there specific Spyder functionality you are looking for in an alternative IDE?

Most Python IDEs can do this. I personally use PyScripter. This link should help you.
