Is it possible to use 2-3 different webcams in a laptop simultaneously? If it is, what is the application to use?

Also, i want to use a webcam through USB but my laptop can't detect it. The built-in webcam runs automatically when I opened the app for it (cheese). Is there any way to disable the built-in cam to use the external webcam?

Thanks You!!!
