No, you can place a logical volume as many times as you like! The 'logical volume' remains the same, but the placements have different copy numbers. In the simplest case, a logical volume is a solid (with defined absolute dimensions) imputed with a material. If your solid changes, even if just the dimension and with the shape remaining the same, you've still got to define a new 'logical volume'.
> Maybe I can make different solids, having the same logical volume name
Well, that's not possible. You have different solids and consequently different logical volumes.

You instantiate a LogicalSkinSurface with a logical volume pointer as an argument.

Hence, you need as many LogicalSkinSurfaces as you have LogicalVolumes. Note, however, the LogicalSkinSurfaces may all have the same physical surface properties, e.g. be defined with the same implementation of G4OpticalSurface.
Curious, what project are you working on? Have you seen my code for HyperK simulation using WCSim?
