For the monitors count, you can use this function:

function MonitorsCount: integer;
var
    TM : TScreen;
begin
    TM := TScreen.Create(Nil);
    try
     result := TM.MonitorCount;
    finally
     TM.Free;
    end;
end;

you can get the properties of each monitor using the Monitors collection of the TScreen object "TM.Monitors in our example".

You can get all monitor information by using an API function called GetMonitorInfo:

BOOL GetMonitorInfo(
  HMONITOR hMonitor,  // handle to display monitor
  LPMONITORINFO lpmi  // display monitor information
);

You can get the monitor handle by using the TMonitor class:

//-------------------------
procedure GetMonitors;
var
   A: Integer;
   MI: LPMONITORINFO;
begin
   with Screen Do
   begin
      for A:= o to MonitorCount - 1 Do
      begin
         GetMonitorInfo(Monitors[A].Handle, MI);
         // Display information of the monitor using MI
      end;
   end;
end;
//-------------------------

You will need to implement the structure of LPMONITORINFO:

typedef struct tagMONITORINFO {
  DWORD  cbSize;
  RECT   rcMonitor;
  RECT   rcWork;
  DWORD  dwFlags;
} MONITORINFO, *LPMONITORINFO;

I don't translate it to pascal because I've copied it from the msdn. You can get this information at:
