You can associate multiple floating ips to a single instance. Floating ips just create natting entries. Keep in mind that traffic that originates from the server will only come from one of these ips.  Also there is no way for the server to determine which ip address the traffic came in on so you will need to do the forwarding at the HTTP layer which has access to the domain name used for the request.
