i am planning to buy 2 of these powerline adapters :

my question is : if i want to add another adapter, do i need to buy only the same model or can i use other powerline adapters from other manufacteurers/brands?

They generally work together. Look at the specification they generally say they are IEEE 1901 or 1905 compatible.

It is not recommended to run more than 2 devices it degrades the performance a lot. It is possible with careful setup to run 4 as 2 different links but it reduces the total bandwidth on both pair.
