Yes, it's called "mountpoints". The documentation covers that quite well.
This page also nicely visualizes the concept:

If you want multiple streams with _different_ content, then yes, of course.
If you want to stream the same content at several qualities and codecs,
then one instance with multiple stream output can work too.

Not really. It's fairly manageable. One Icecast server and some source
clients. Of course a micro-instance of $random_cloud_service will maybe
not be sufficient. But given, that even physical servers can already be
had for around 10-20€/month that shouldn't be of issue.
