I would like to know whether it is possible to have a single dashboard with all system profiles combined? I have about 20 system profiles each with 4 dashboards. Is it possible to combine all the dashboards into one dashboard which can give a over view or somthing like executive view?
Up to how many clients can be used/installed for a large environment without any overhead on Dynatrace server?

Dynatrace cannot display information from different profiles on the same dashlet but you could have lets' say 2 dashlets within the same dashboard "pinned" to 2 different profiles (with no overlap). Dynatrace 6.2 (coming out at the end of the month), will let you have a global infrastructure view but only from a host perspective.
About your second question, I couldn't find exact figures but since version 6.1, the front-end server helps scale better. It decouples the clients from the backend server so clients are no longer a bottleneck for Dynatrace. You could still saturate your front-end server with too many clients though .

To add one option to what Florent already said: check out this blog post: http://apmblog.dynatrace.com/2015/02/24/how-to-performance-monitor-all-your-applications-on-a-single-dashboard/ - our enablement service team is implementing some cool dashboards that aggregate data from large system environments.
