yes, because you only apply the modification to the first molecule.

no. that is not a valid syntax. please look it up in the VMD user's guide.
you should be using the "mol default" subcommand to change your default
settings, or put a little piece of script code into a "after idle" section
that loops over all molecules and changes/adds/deletes representations as
you want/need it.
