Because there are no guides attached to this PC version I try to sum the things up in short you have to do for this achievements.

Occult Weapon and Divine Weapon all go the same way and can be easily done with just one of the rare White Titanite Slabs. I will give you a Step by Step how to do that.
Theres in fact another easy trick to make this weapons fast and cheap because you can find a already upgraded occult weapon in a Mimic Chests. Thats why I will give you under the *Asterix* the number of materials in total and in bold the number of materials with these weapon found

Step 1 - The Materials
To make all 2 weapons in one go you need
*18 Titanite Shards*
9 Titanite Shards Shards are sold by Andrei the Smith in Undead Parish
*20 Green Titanite Shards*
10 Green Titanite Shards The Shards are dropped by the slime balls in The Depths and the slugs in Blighttown at the ground. You can also buy them at the smith in Anor Londo and the vendor at the rooftop of Sens Fortress
9 White Titanite Chunks Dropped by the Dark Knight in Kiln of the First Flame. Also a rare drop from Bone Towers in the Tomb of Giants.
1 White Titanite Slab The Slab is found in the Tomb of Giants before you enter the Boss Fight Room of Gravelord Nito (Room with the small skeletons), on the left is a small Tunnel.

Step 2 - The Embers and the Weapons
Divine Ember - Darkroot Garden, after the fight with Moonlight Butterfly on top of the tower in the same area.

Large Divine Ember - Tomb of Giants, from the first bonfire go up the stairs and to the right. There you will find a large coffin with several Large Skelleton Warriors and the Ember.

Dark Ember - Painted Worls of Ariamis. Inside the Annex (where you need the key to open the door from the courtyard with the Spear Abdominations). Harpies will attack after you pick this up.

Occult Weapon - Anor Londo, 3rd Bonfire. In one of the rooms you will find an old fireplace. A hit against the back of it reveals a hidden staircase towards the basement. Here you find Havels Armor Set and one lonely chest. This one is a Mimic, kill it, loot your weapon.

Step 3 - The Smith
Andrei the Smith in Undead Parish is your man, give him all 3 Embers and he can smith both weapons for you.

Step 4 - 3 Achievements
Alright, now that we have all the Materials, Embers and maybe the weapon that make this easier. *Asterix* is again the alternate way without this weapon.
1) Go to Andrei, choose 1 Weapon and upgrade it to +5.
*1) Go to Andrei and upgrade 2 Weapons of your choice to +5,
2) Ascend your weapon to Holy +1, upgrade it to +5 and ascend it again to +6
*2) Ascend both weapons to Holy +1, upgrade them both to +5 and ascend one to Occult +1 and one to Holy +6*

Now comes the tricky part - from here on you can do the rest of the respective upgrades in one go.
Do that but do not leave the upgrade window!!!
The game will Autosave after you close the window, the trick is to complete the whole upgrade until the achievement pops and then close your game, load it new and do the other upgrade in one go. This way you can do all 2 achievements in one go with just 1 White Titanite Slab and 9 White Titanite Chunks. Otherwise you need 2 Slabs and 17 Chunks total.
Ascend your +6 Holy Weapon to +10 - close game - upgrade your crafted or existing +1 Occult Weapon to +5. Craft the weapon you want to keep last. ;-)

Step 5 - Hooray
Here you are, 2 achievements and the weapon of your choice in your Pocket. If you choose the Occult Weapon you get added Magic Weapon Damage that scales with Faith. Strenght/Dex scaling is decreased. You also extra damage against living creatures (Black and Silver Knights).
