Your approach is correct.
Make 2 projects, Laravel API, (or lumen) and a React frontend.

Serve React site (node server) on your-domain.com, and fetch data from api.your-domain.com will be your php-laravel endpoint.

Once you have done that, you can use server-side rendering ( and later a technique called hydration ) to your first load, that will help with SEO.
SEO is mostly related to what is served on front, so you need to work on SEO techniques on your react front-end. Depending on your need you might not need to do anything seo related in laravel api except for making sure http codes are proper.
