You can edit the dates of the trip via the website at any time. Though I haven't run multiple trips with overlapping dates, I strongly suspect that it'd work fine.
I think you could set up a life-time tracker like you suggest, though again, I'm not sure. I've seen a number of examples of people setting up year-long Spotwalla maps.
