    This is how you change port -

    You would need to run Hyper-V to have 2 instances on same hardware

    Its possible. I did that at Windows Server 2003.

    First change port. restart terminal service, and then go to Terminal service configuration and add second RDP connection. Both connection work and you can setup different user group to access them and different options.
