I'm not sure how "rapid" the succession needs to be, but a 3.5 wizard should be able to do it at 2nd level. Unless the first target perceives the second casting as a threat, there should be no problems.

Well, unless they have exactly 11 intelligence, they can do it at 1st level (or if they specialize in enchantment). Though, a wizard with 11 intelligence isn't really a wizard and more of someone who doesn't know how classes work.

Well 11 INT could be a NPC who decided to be a town wizard instead of an adventuring hero. He's smart enough for 1st lv spells and if he's a specalist (banning necromancy is a no brainer for this kind of build) he has 3 spells per day he can use for things like leomond's chest, make whole, continual flame and crafters fortune to eek out a modest living.

if it's in 2 consecutive rounds than any caster capable of casting enchantment spells could throw 2 of them out.

If it's ONE round then in 3.5 there's a couple ways it could have happened, Either a specialist Enchanter with Metamagic school focus (enchanment) could have thrown out a Quickened or Chained charm person from a 3rd level slot or they could have taken Arcane Thesis (charm person) or Easy Metamagic (quicken spell)

In Pathfinder I can think of only one way to pull this off in one round at lv 5 and that's Magical Lineage (charm person) but that would mean he's built SOLELY for rapid casting of charm spells.
