Welcome to maker.pro.
What audio output sockets are available on the system?

If so, then it looks as though it would mean tapping into the Front R and L speaker connections and applying the signals via variable attenuators to the headphones. I haven't checked if there is any module already available online to do this.

The only way I can think of to keep both on is to remove the cover and see if you can modify the headphone jack.
Below is a typical connection for such a jack:
The two stereo signals go to pins 2 and 3.
When there is no headphone plugged in the signals go out pins 4 and 5 to the amp.
When the headphone is plugged in it mechanically forces the contact between pins 2-4 and 3-5 to open, while contact is made to the headphones.
So to allow the speakers to always be on, you would solder a wire between pins 2-4 and pins 3-5.

You will need to use an ohmmeter to determine which pins are connected together when there is no plug into the jack, and all the pin connection to the plug outputs when the plug is in the jack.
