Say you have 2 or 4 or 10 number of miners pointing to one  wallet address. What happens if a payout from two of them are at the exact same time? Do they collide? Does one bump the other out of the way? Is it better to give each miner its own wallet address?

I'm sure there is no problem with "colliding" but you might want to have your miners pointed at different addresses just so you can keep tabs on how well each minor is doing individually.

Ultimately your payment is nothing more than a series of IP packets being delivered to a PC connected to the Internet.  Packet collisions do happen but not as often as you would think.  In the event of a collision a packet is re transmitted from the last router that forwarded it so in your case this would most likely be your cable/dsl/fios router in your house. 

Bottom line...it isn't something to even remotely concern yourself with.

Not entirely sure what you're asking here.  Payments aren't generated by your miners.  Your miners generate shares that are interpreted by the pool/network.  Can your miners submit the same work?  Sure, they can.  The pool would ignore the dual submission.  If two of your miners happen to submit a hash that satisfies the network's difficulty, only one would be accepted and added to the block chain.

As to whether or not your should give your miners unique addresses, it depends on how you're mining.  For example, some pools (GHash.io, BTCGuild, etc) allow you to define workers, but only payout to a single address.  Other pools (p2pool, Eligius, etc) allow you to mine directly to an address.

It sounds like you're asking if your address can accept more than one transaction at a single time, the answer is yes. It won't shoot one out and accept the other, it'll accept both. A great example of this is bitcoin addresses associated with dice games, they're accepting tons of transactions all the time.
