Lots of things in TYPO3 depend on the plugin capabilities you use. In 
your case, I would suggest the comments extension from Dmitry Dulepov 
(http://typo3.org/extensions/repository/view/comments/current/), someone 
who is very active and involved in TYPO3 and I bet you may configure the 
plugin the way you want.

Except for the page overlay mechanism, plugins store their data in a 
single DB table with a column indicating the language associated. Thus 
yes, you will have a single table in your database.
