This is currently not possible.

It can be placed anywhere you want in your site. Multi selection is not possible.

Yes, it would be great... unfortunately there are some major barriers to Faceted Search (which is what you are trying to emulate). The main barrier to real Faceted Search is server resources. Most Faceted Searches that filter more than a thousand products require a search server such as Solr be used. Otherwise, Faceted Search will bring down your site.
