One option is to run multiple windows in the screen session.

Here's just enough to get you started:
- Create new windows with ^a^c
- Switch windows with ^a^a
- Delete a window by closing its shell
- Get help with ^a?

You can have all ssh'es to a given server connect to the same screen
session, then in each xterm display a different window.

Regarding your other question, screen runs on the server.  Here's an
analogy to help confuse you.  Screen is a text-mode vnc server, xterm is
the vnc client, and ssh is the network link.
