Default Multiple profiles, PSN vs XBL vs Wii

Currently working on a little project to make the Console Admins' life a little easier (and get them more time to actually PLAY rather than admin)...

I have a PS3, I don't own an Xbox, X360 nor a Wii, so I need to ask a really basic question:

With a PS3/PSN, it's quite easy to create multiple online profiles (ideal for split personalities, or games like MAG where you dedicate a profile to one faction).

My question is this:
Can you do the same with XBL and Wii (whatever Wii's network is called)?
I know you have an XBL Gamer tag.. can you have more than one on the same machine?
I know Wiis have a "Wii code", is that one-code-one-Wii, or can you have multiple codes for different profiles?

The Wii has no profiles, so one-code-one-Wii. Some games may have an option to create multiple profiles but most don't.

You can create multiple Mii's on the Wii. (Multiple save games & multiple avatars)

On the XBOX 360, you can make as many profiles as you like (Gamer Tags), but they will be silver unless you pay for a live subscription ... for each one. (So no online play) and sharing downloaded content is not as user friendly as on the PS3.
