1. It depends if your EAs are well coded to work together. There is no optimal, maximum is limited by computer resources only.

2. Limited only by your VPS available resources (RAM, CPU, HDD).

Of course, place your EA on a chart with the currency pair you need, then adjust the parameters. Do the same for each symbol.

Maybe yes,  maybe no. Unless the EA has been coded with this in mind there is the risk that the EAs might interfere with each other by managing the trades for the other EA.  

So yes,  you can run the same EA twice or more,  will they work correctly ?  that depends on the design of the EA.

correct
EA can sometimes interfere with other EA when different logic
and is usually associated with the MAGIC number or slip
then, try it first on a demo account, by changing the magic number or slip
distinguish the numbers on each card

Well the most optimal is ofcourse one. The maximal depends on computer specs and the traders mentality of the maximum computer unresponsivness they can take safely without getting mad.

On a pentium i3 with 4 RAM GB, I have two MT5 instances running. One instance is running about 30 robots and the other is copying signals.
