status quo is IBM i 7.2 in first LPAR of a 8203-E4A. When I want to create additional LPARs (in HMC), according to the iVirtualization Link shown below there needs to be a host SCSI adapter in the primary LPAR, and a client adapter in the guest LPAR, with according ID configuration. This works fine for one guest LPAR.

Before trying and investing a lot of time: Do I need to have a server SCSI adapter in the primary LPAR for every further guest LPAR? Or can one adapter be shared across LPARs. I have no idea where to look for this special kind of information.

How many secondary LPARs does IBM i as a hypervisor allow to run? And, how to overcome the four logical ports limit with an installed LHEA? (Displaying the LHEA configuration of a LPAR profile to choose a logical port yields four logical ports available.) It's really hard to find the right spot in the huge amount of documentation from IBM. I failed to find it.
