Without knitting two separate sections and seaming in the middle, is there a way to get cast on and bound off edges of scarves to match? For example, long tail cast on would match (or resemble) what type of bind off? Cable cast on with....??? Knitted cast on with....??

Start in the middle and work in both directions and you will have a cast off at both ends.
Have fun.

PS, I mean by Casting On with waste yarn and picking up the stitches to work the other way, rather than seaming.

In this case, I do a regular bind off in all purl stitches. It will match the cast on edge.

Please explain how you use waste yarn to cast on and picking up the stitches to go both ways! Thanks

Yes. Cast on and knit your pattern until you are at the half way point of your finished length. Put your stitches on a holder. Then cast on and knit a second piece until you get to the same length as your first piece. The join the two pieces using a Kitcjner's stitch. This method will work no matter what your pattern is because the Kitchner matches each set of stitches. This is the stitch used to close up the toe end of socks. I tried this on a shawl I was making with a lace pattern and guess what? It works. Good luck 

It is as simple as Casting On with waste yarn, in a contrast colour and not fluffy, work a couple of rows then change to your main yarn and work half of your scarf & Cast Off.
Go back to the end with the waste yarn and pick up the stitches and work the other way.
If you are using a lacy stitch, you will find that the pattern does not match exactly but you can work a couple of rows of Stocking Stitch, adding in a stitch to make up for the half stitch you lose off each end.
Take off the waste yarn.
Have fun.
Colleen.

It is called a provisional cast on

Most of them start with a crochet hook but I went for the just knitting one. look at the others if you like them
