I have the female, friend of mine has the blue-fronted male. Parrots were introduced several months ago and get along and socialize great together.

Toying with the idea of encouraging them to mate. Not finding any information of breeding sub-species (maybe improper use of term).

I assume this is going to be either a 'no' or a 'yes, but...' kind of answer.

Educate me, please.

It is possible for them to breed but so not recommended. They're different species from different regions and all you'd be doing is creating hybrids. It works for macaws but amazons seek out their own kind to pair up with.
BTW; breeding parrots is not like breeding dogs. You can't just get them together and think you'll have babies. Birds must choose and accept their mates before going to nest. And once bonded, they will protect each other and not prefer your company over their mate's.

PLEASE PLEASE be responsible and NEVER breed hybrids of any species. Its not responsible or professional. This type of breeding does nothing but pollute our industry with bloodlines that future breeders may not even know what they may end of with.
