Sadly, it looks like I cannot test this on production. Whenever I apply the license key, and restart the services, EMM Services on my Master are down, and no Media Servers are visible.
When I remove the key, restart the Services all is fine.
So I cannot test this now :-( All I needed was a temporary key for the Enterprise Client License to validate it :-(

Finally, the purpose of this is for some of our large servers that have Multiple volumes. Is there any problem selecting multiple drive letters under Backup selections tab? In other words, rather than list 1, can I list 8 different volumes?

Be careful with this.  When the parent job starts, it will immediately create all of the snapshots.  If some of the child jobs don't start for a while, you'll have a snapshot out there wasting space (and giving you possible performance degradation on the client) for nothing.

In general, because of this (bad, IMO) design, I create a single policy per FlashBackup volume.
