How to set up multiple tomcat instances?
- add multiple users, each with 1 tomcat instance, tart with tanuki wrappers or catalina jsvc
How to setup multiple sites in 1 tomcat?
-add many host definitions in server.xml and deploy from XML files conf/Catalina/<hostname>/ROOT.xml (WAR files should not be in webapps)

Which way is the best? No idea - well behaved applications will work fine, one bad seed will kill the rest.

how about in one user, copy multiple tomcat folder, then change the port for each tomcat, for example, first one use 80 port, the second one use 8001   etc.... deploy one website in one tomcat ?
Just like in 2nd option host names have to be unique, in 1st option you must choose unique port names.
Depending on how you start tomcat you might not need shutdown port, and probably will use one of AJP and HTTP, not both...
