2) Can I control multiple computers?

Yes, however each Alexa input device (echo) can only communicate with a single computer at a time. To set the preferred target computer say "Alexa, ask web browser to set my preferred vicki" and it will list all connected computers by a name. The name of each computer is listed inside the browser extension's pop up.

3) Can I control my computer from multiple echos?

Yes, when you attempt to use your 2nd echo the computer will prompt you to add the echo as a trusted device.
