Yes, a summary index can have many sources. Once an index exists, it is possible to direct many sources into it - this is true for regular indexes and summary indexes.

That really depends on your use case. Probably the most common way is to feed into a summary index using saved searches or reports. Here are some good walk-through documents that should help you determine how to approach this:

@Mohsin123 use the new source in your collect statement. Instead of

| collect index=downloadcount

do this

| collect index=downloadcount source=mynewsource
