I would like to get a list of documents where user x and y has permissions. Can someone help me? I would like to do it in either PowerShell or C# code.

You can use the SPList.DoesUserHavePermission() method on lists.

foreach (var list in web.Lists)
    SPFieldUserValue flduserVal = new SPFieldUserValue(web, "1#;Administrator");
    SPUser user = flduserVal.User;
    bool hasPermissions = web.DoesUserHavePermissions(SPBasePermissions.ViewListItems);
    //some code
