I'm not really experienced with FR, but maybe this is enough to help you.

FR is able to store users and their attributes in a couple of backends 
including sql database and a users text file. See the modules section of 
radiusd.conf for more information.

That probably depends on the backend you're using, or look in if there's a limit.

I guess that's a question of performance first. Propably all backends 
can store _enough_ users and FR can also handle them.

Technically it's not necessary. But if you use it for something 
important it's obvious better to have one... ;-) It's possible of course 
to set up 2 RADIUS servers.
