No, he cannot be in more than one place at a time. He has help from other fallen angels. But the fallen angels do not cooperate harmoniously, as the holy angels do. There is instead discension and discord. Satan does not control all the fallen angels; he controls some, he influences others, he has little or no influence over some.

Only fallen angels tempt souls. Human persons do not tempt souls in the same way as fallen angels, although obviously many temptations come from other human persons and from society in general.
