How can I login to different site collection and what we want:

  1. Top level site collection contains our deployed solutions (web application). So would it reflect to all other site collections ?

The method you're using is unsupported and should not be used as it doesn't properly clean the previous user's session. Instead, run your browser as a different user. In Windows you can shift-right click the browser to select 'Run as a different user'.
