Zoom WordPress Plugin v4.1.0
The v4.1.0 for Zoom WordPress Plugin adds some new capabilities to select a WordPress user as the Zoom Meeting host. The changes were aimed at allowing greater flexibility for admins to schedule meetings and allow users on your site to act as a meeting host.
The site admin can now select any WP user apart from the users with subscriber role(users registered from frontend) as the Meeting host under Zoom Meetings -> Add Meeting -> Meeting Host.
Note: The plugin allows logged-in administrator users on your site to join any Zoom meeting as a Meeting host.
Zoom Host Mapping
The update also adds a convenient option to map users on your Zoom account to users on your WP site. If a WP user on your site has the same email as the one added to your Zoom account(Zoom Meeting -> Users) then the user will act as a meeting host when they join the meeting from frontend while logged in. However, if the user registered on your site has a different email than the one added to your Zoom account then you can use the mapping feature in Zoom Meetings -> Map Zoom Hosts. You can associate any user from your Zoom account to a WP user which will enable your WP user to act as a host for the meetings under that Zoom account.
In a multi-host environment, it is important to note that Zoom does not allow a host to conduct multiple meetings simultaneously. If you want to join a meeting as a host make sure there is no other active meeting going on under your account already from (Zoom Meetings -> Status) otherwise you can always join the meeting as a normal user by logging out of the WP site.

Hi, with multiple hosts in the Zoom account is it possible to host simultaneous meetings? Each with different host
Each host can conduct their own meeting so it can be simultaneous if the hosts are different. Only simultaneous meetings by the same host are not possible with Zoom.
