If I buy another kindle can it be added to the same account? Willl future purchases be sent to both kindles?

Yes. You can if you wish, or direct the purchase to one Kindle.

You can have as many devices as you like on the account. All books on the account will be available to the devices on the account.

Specific to your second question: Books are directed by default to the alphabetically-first-named device, but when each book is purchased, you can select any device or app on the account to receive the book.

Yes, each device on a given account has a unique name. If you don't name it, Amazon will--highly imaginative names like 'Paul's Kindle' and 'Paul's 2nd Kindle' are their picks. You can rename them from the device or from MYK/Manage Your Devices.

Look at every book product page. Just below the 'Buy With One-Click' button there's a dropdown selection box. It's been a long time since I only had one device/app, but I think the selection box is there always, giving a choice of registering a new device/app if there's only one active choice.

If you have an e-ink device and the new one is a Fire, there's no ammount of renaming that will elevate a Fire above the e-ink in the selection box. Likewise, apps always stay at the bottom.
