Nothing you have said would be helped by running multiple bugzilla
instances. Running multiple instances is something I suggest you treat
as a last resort. Instead of running multiple bugzillas, you can use a
distinct product for each type of record and even customize the
templates to change terminology on a per-product basis.
If there is something that you think can be done in multiple instances
but not in a single instance, please mention it here. I do not think
such a thing exists.
