ACARS: I think you need to do the TOD pause in the sim; then advise your HM/AHM of the pause to deduct pause time from your PIREP.

Scheduling: More than one pilot can bid on the same flight at the same time. Both flights can even take place concurrently; I was recently the second person flying with the same callsign. The only time that you are going to have an issue is if more than one pilot tries to log onto VATSIM with the same callsign. Then, the second flier has to add a "B" or something different to differentiate them from the flier already online. (That can happen anytime, for example, since there is more than one UAL VA and anyone can log on to fly any flight at any time.)

Set up your own SImbrief account (it's free) and set up your flights as you want them, keeping in mind vUAL's substitution policies, e.g., you can't fly a 777 on a flight that calls for an E145.

Try flying some of the tours/awards if you're overwhelmed by the myriad of choices available. And, there's no reason why you can't fly connecting flight(s) between the end of one tour and the start of the next.
