If I want to create the pooling based upon the Indexes instead of Indexer Is it possible?

@PickleRick Thank you for the reply... if I understood you correctly below is the possible scenario. 

Suppose I am having an indexer cluster having three indexers and total license of 50GB. Here I want 4 pools to be created.

Pool1 --> Any Indexer that connects = 20 GB

Pool2 --> Specific Indexer (Indexer 1)= A,B,C (Indexes) = 10GB

Pool3--> Specific Indexer (Indexer 2)= X,Y,Z (Indexes)  =  10GB

Pool4--> Specific Indexer (Indexer 3)= P,Q,R (Indexes) =  10GB

So if in case my data is landing to either Index A or B, it will be licensed once under that 10GB Pool Limit only and post that my data will be replicated across all three indexers and searched based upon the defined replication and Search Factor.

No. You have to assign a whole cluster to a single pool. You can't do a "this indexer uses this pool and that one uses another pool" cluster. All cluster members must share the same licensing pool.

No. License pool is associated with specified search peers. The only way to associate it with specific indexes would be to create separate indexers or clusters holding said indexes and simply split your indexes between diffent search peers. That way you would have your license effectively split between indexes while technically split between indexers. That's the only way you could achieve that.
