Yes: for any system servers (one Tor server, system-daemon).
No: for any client soft (Torbrowser without inner tor component - "disbundled" TBB).

You can add many users to your /home/user1, /home/user2, /home/userX, etc.
After upgrading with package manager /homedir settings of users
(programm configs for chat, accounts in mail-agents, etc) remains individual and different.

In my case any user (my anonymous profile)
has personal X-servers (running in parallel mode) to be fully isolated
from another and separated with firewall to individual 
circuits creation in system tor-daemon individual users ports.

Yes, system tor-daemon will be no more than one at the same time like apache.
And don't need to be to.

This works for any client software, but TBB is tightly bundled in not very friendly
unixish way and more restrictive and unconventional deb-packaging makes upgrades painful
for some slightly advanced using cases instead of any other Linux client soft.
