That's controlled by the user's home directory.

I still don't know what you mean by 'how many allowed' or 'id connections'. If you mean how many simultaneous users? Linux doesn't much resemble a Windows system where the capacity of the same program binary depends on the price tag.

windows machines can use file shares expored by samba, yes. This has nothing to do with sftp at all.

try to man sftp..
btw, sftp is over ssh. By default, openssh server is installed and sshd is running. I think that is all you need to use sftp.
