Multiple databases in a single machine, yes. You can, as long as you have enough resources. Just create more databases using dbca/command line options.
Multiple instances of the same database, NO. You can have multiple instances of the same database across multiple nodes and it is called as RAC (real application clusters).
But for fun and learning, yes, you can build a rac on laptop

You can just use CREATE DATABASE command to create many database under your same oracle installaion.
Only thing is it all wil have diferent pfile,controlfile etc..
Also add all database names to your /etc/oratab file in unix env.
Before connecting you say DB1,you have to set $ORACLE_SID=DB1,once this value point to correct database,you can use sqlplus to work on that database.

sqlplus scott/tiger@db1
