Multiple Planeswalkers

I've recently got into MtG and am trying to fit Planeswalkers into my decks.

Can you have more than one of the same planeswalker on the field at a time?  For example, could I have 2 Chandra, the firebrand on the field at once?
If two planeswalkers with the same type are on the battlefield they are put in the graveyard.

You can cast them, it just dies right away.  (might be a good choice to kill your opponents planeswalker)

No. If there are two or more planeswalkers of the same planeswalker subtype on the battlefield, they all go to the graveyard (due to SBAs).

For example, if you control [C]Chandra, the Firebrand[/C] and your opponent puts a [C]Chandra Ablaze[/C] on the battefield, both go to the graveyard.
No. They would be put into the graveyard before any player could do anything.

If two planeswalkers have the same planeswalker type, which is the word after the dash, they are both put into the graveyard.
No, there is a rule called the Planeswalker Uniqueness Rule, which says that if two or more planeswalkers with the same type are on the battlefield at the same time, all such planeswalkers are sent to their owner's graveayrds immediately.

This means that you can't have two copies of Chandra, the Friebrand, AND you can't have a Chandra, the Firebrand and a Chandra Nalaar at the same time (because they both have the Chandra type). It also doesn't matter who controls either planeswalker, so if you play a planeswalker while your opponent has a planeswalker of the same type, both will go to the graveyard almost immediately after your resolves. 

Standard Answer to all 5E rules questions: "Ask your DM."

That makes no sense to me. If they spelled the ability out on the card in full then it would not be allowed in a mono-black Commander deck, but because they used a keyword to save space it is allowed? ~ Tim
Yup, just like you can have Birds of paradise in a mono green deck but not Noble Hierarch. YAY COLOR IDENTITY

I love this description. Like the cows are sponges filled with milk. I can see it all Nick Parks claymation-style with the cow's eyes bugging out momentarily as a giant farmer squeezes it like a squeaky dog toy, and milk shoots out of it.
