One of the misconceptions about OS X is that it can’t run the same application more with than one instance. The way around this is to open the Terminal and write “open -n /Applications/yourapp.app” and it will launch a new instance of the app, even if it’s open.

If you want to change the application to use, just open the Service file in Automator and change the path to the app.
